Global Early Warning Information System

After Marcus Sachs the Cyber Program Director for the Information Analysis and Infrastructure Protection in the US Department of Homeland Security spoke at Black Hat, CNET writes about the Global Early Warning Information System. No .gov site offers official details, although this Washington Post article is helpful. GEWIS seems to build on the Cyber Warning and Information Network.

In case you were wondering how fast people patch systems, check out this article referencing this panel at Black Hat. Earlier work by Eric Rescorla (.pdf) is also disappointing.
