"A government report into cybercrime has recommended that internet 
service providers (ISPs) force customers to use antivirus and firewall 
software or risk being disconnected.

This is being discussed extensively on AUSNOG and is but one link in a long chain of gov't trying to control the internet there with little realization of how ineffective the proposals are.  Seems to be politicians playing to a certain part of the populace so votes can be obtained.
