This idea, put simply, is to monitor the Internet for new viruses, worms, or trojans. They may be network-based or email-borne. Based on TruSecure's proven Ballistic Threat Model, these new attacks will be assessed to determine if they will represent a significant wide-spread threat. Each year there are approximately 10-20 such attacks.
