bennyboy64 writes “Barack Obama’s cyber-security coordinator has shown interest in an e-security code of practice developed in Australia that aims to quarantine Internet users infected by malware, also known as zombie computers. He reportedly said it would be a useful role model for the US to adopt. One suggestion within the code is to put infected users into a ‘walled garden’, which limits Internet access to prevent further security problems until quarantined. Another is to throttle the speed of an infected users’ Internet connection until their computer fixed. The code is also being considered by other Asia-Pacific countries, ZDNet reports.”
