Algorithms, specifically pattern matching algorithm widely being used in information processing areas, such as bioinformatics and computer security.

In computer security domain, this includes packet inspection, file maliciousness detection and such. To name a few, Aho-Carosick being used for one IDS' string search (not sure if it still using it). Then there are anti viruses looking for certain string for their signature matching detection.
