Internet Storm Center Gadget

Decided to take a look at Google Desktop and see what it takes to actually create a gadget. Turns out it’s nothing more than Javascript and XML along with the Google API, so I thought I’d start small and just create a gadget that would simply grab the alert status graphic over at http://isc.sans.org.

“The intent of the ‘Infocon’ is to reflect changes in malicious traffic and the possibility of disrupted connectivity.”

Once you install the gadget, you can click on it and be taken to http://isc.sans.org to get more details on the current threat level.

Download and install the Internet Storm Center gadget.
