Government planning cyberalert system

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security plans to announce details of a cyberalert system on Wednesday, two days after a virus called MyDoom spread rapidly across the Internet. The system, which will be detailed by the department's National Cyber Security Division, could mimic the color-coded scheme the government uses to warn citizens and alert law enforcement authorities of terrorism threats, a source familiar with some details of the plan said. Source: C|Net News.com Great! I can get an email (CNN) telling how if its an orange day, or not! Yay! Is it just me, but doesn't the virus companies such as Sophos, Symantec, and McAfee do this job right now? It just sounds to me like the Gov't is doing something that is already available from other sources. It sounds to me like more wasted money and resources from Washington, IMO.
