Universal Virus Database

ThinkComputers.org ponders the idea of a universal virus database. While there are a few websites out their with decent information on a wide range of bugs, there's still no official, central place to log information on all the new types of viruses, and similar software.

"In response to the recent article on viruses and after a long time spent fighting the various beasties as they have popped up over the course of the past decade or so, I have come up with a few ideas which I believe might help battle the problem and should be implemented and regulated nationally, if not globally. I call it the "Universal Virus Database" but really, it should include more than just viruses. The idea should cover all forms of malware, including spyware, adware, trojans and rootkit hacks."
