CERT to sell Net-threat alerts

Author: JT Smith

From WSJ.com via ZD Net: "One of the U.S. government's front-line defenses against
cyber-sabotage will begin selling its early warnings about the latest Internet
threats, something it used to share only with federal agencies.

The shift comes as the taxpayer-funded CERT Coordination Center, formerly known as the
Computer Emergency Response Team, joins a prominent electronics trade association to form a
new 'Internet Security Alliance.' "
