Comcast is launching a trial on Thursday of a new automated service that will warn broadband customers of possible virus 
infections, if the computers are behaving as if they have been compromised by malware.

"ISPs have a helpful role to play in helping subscribers mitigate these kinds of security threats," she said. "The
