    Re: Aussies: Get a virus, no Web for you!

    One possible solution would be for an ISP to redirect the user to a landing page managed by the ISP if the user is suspected of sending out malware. The ISP then could check the user agent information provided by the browser, and make recommendations or take action based on what it discovers.

    There are, however, a couple of limitations to this approach. There are user agent switchers and other factors which could mislead the server. Based on the IP address assigned by my ISP, I'm supposedly in Auckland. I'm not. And then there are proxies......

    Never assume that information you find using a search engine is up-to-date.

    In the end, there is just no good way of doing this :/

    This has as much chance of actually going ahead as the recently-shelved Internet filter plan does.

    Which is to say, none at all.
    If you can't be bothered writing coherently, I can't be bothered reading your post.
