Common Malware Enumeration
This article describes the Common Malware Enumeration project. CME is a sister project to Mitre's Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) initiative. CME will "assign unique identifiers to high priority malware events." This is a great idea, because anti-virus vendors, security researchers, and OS/application vendors will be able to refer to a common name rather than their internal representations for malware. DHS is funding the CME project.
