    Intel demos worm cut-off technology

    Intel researchers have demonstrated a new hardware system designed to rapidly and automatically quarantine PCs infected with worms of viruses. Announced at this week’s Intel Developer Forum (IDF), the Manageability Engine technology - internally referred to as "Circuit Breaker" - is designed to monitor the number of connections being made by a PC, and assess the integrity of the machine’s security software. If it detects a higher than normal number of external connections being made, and this can be related to other software anomalies, the PC is then automatically disconnected to stop it becoming a platform from which to infect further machines.
