Is there an IDS which can block a machine from a network when it's been
infected with a trojan? At least block Internet access, if it's a box
positioned behind the firewall.

A guy from Network Associates cold-called today to ask me about IDS and when
I asked him this he said he'd have to check with an engineer. Funny, to
seems like that's something which should be mandatory for an IDS.
