Secure feed ISPs

Interestingly since writing the last post, I've noticed that Edinburgh University - who act as my ISP and that of many 1000s of staff and students have begun compulsorily scanning the accounts of users, by administrative unit, for security breaches and vulnerabilities. And yes, you can opt out - but then the unit opting out according to the security policy must " ensure that they have sufficient resources to quickly identify compromised or mal-configured systems when the need [arises]" . This is pretty much the model I was beginning to outline below.
