Overview Edit

This report report arises out of a proposal introduced by Australia on the role of Internet Service Providers (ISPs) in improving cybersecurity.

Once an ISP has identified or been informed of an infected computer, it may take a number of different actions to resolve the problem, including forcing account password resets, disconnecting or quarantining an Internet connection, restricting certain forms of online communication, informing users about where to find tools to remove malware, directly providing users with these tools and offering support services for advanced problems or general queries.
