Computer Associates International is offering free e-mail alerts regarding critical viruses and vulnerabilities.
The critical threat alerts are one of many new improvements to CA's Security Advisor website, the company notes. CA Security Advisor, formerly known as the Threat Information Center, now offers the Threat Dashboard and RSS Threat Feeds.
The Threat Dashboard provides a web-based feed of critical threat information, allowing organisations to display the latest CA Security Advisor alerts on their websites. Individual users who have installed a news readercan also access updated threat news on their desktops.
CA claimed that CA Security Advisor is the first, single-source destination for detailed and validated information regarding computing threats, including malware and vulnerabilities.
CA Security Advisor offers systems and security administrators:
- Immediate critical threat e-mail notifications;
