Security as a Broadband VAS

Interesting article by Greg Masters, SC Magazine, "Should ISPs take responsibility for exploits?" - here.

"Is the ISP a pipe or conduit or should it be responsible for fixing problems?" asked Craig Spiezle, executive director of Online Trust Alliance, a nonprofit that seeks to enhance the security of e-commerce and online services .. He also spoke admirably of his personal ISP provider for sending warnings when his son's computer was infected, which provided instructions for remediation. Web providers such as Comcast and Cox Communications have rolled out similar programs. Other ISPs believe it is not their job to fix machines, he said."
