Microsoft continues push for infected computers to be quarantined
Microsoft’s Scott Charney is pushing ahead with a proposal for a public health model to curb the damage from botnets of malware-laden computers around the world.
During a keynote presentation (see documentation) at the RSA Conference here, Charney trumpeted a “global Internet health model” that uses existing technologies and organizational policies to implement a system that limits what an infected computer can do on the Internet.
Charney’s message was much the same as it was last year when the Microsoft Trustworthy Computing chief called on ISPs to be aggressive and consider shutting off Internet access to infected computers.
This year, Charney took his message further, suggesting that computer users can opt into a Web-based program that provides alerts when security risks are identifies.
