Microsoft Wants Isolation Ward for Infected PCs

Microsoft security chief Scott Charney wants to protect your computer from botnet-infected PCs on the Internet. In a paper published yesterday, Charney proposed issuing “health certificates” to malware-free machines, requiring antivirus updates for those with vulnerabilities, and quarantining PCs infected by botnets. In a post to a company blog, he argued, “Just as when an individual who is not vaccinated puts others’ health at risk, computers that are not protected or have been compromised with a bot put others at risk and pose a greater threat to society.”

About Voices

Along with original content and posts from across the Dow Jones network, this section of AllThingsD includes Must-Reads From Other Websites — pieces we’ve read, discussions we’ve followed, stuff we like. Six posts from external sites are included here each weekday, but we only run the headlines. We link to the original sites for the rest. These posts are explicitly labeled, so it’s clear that the content comes from other websites, and for clarity’s sake, all outside posts run against a pink background.

We also solicit original full-length posts and accept some unsolicited submissions.
