I am excited to be involved in the joint industry effort of defining an XML format which will allow for the rapid exchange of information between security companies. This work was done by the “Malware Working Group” operating as part of the “Industry Connections Security Group” (ICSG) and under the umbrella of the IEEE. If you Google for “IEEE” and “ICSG” you should have the link at the top of the list – IEEE ICSG .

Wider adoption of this meta-data sharing will replace the trivial malware sample exchange of the past with a real-time exchange of threat intelligence data...

...If you are an administrator you can submit consolidated field reports to anti-malware vendors and help make the Internet a safer place.

Now if that actually takes place,it will make investigation and responses to threats way much faster and easier...  :)
Only for the "fun" of aka sowhat-x aka younameit ;-)
