Not an "official" in the sense of Microsoft supported/endorsed/sponsored. It's an IT person who's trying to keep up on/informed about Windows 8 and in so doing, help others keep up on and be informed.

The OFFICIAL Windows 8 site is:
http://blogs.msdn.com/b/b8/
and has only been up a little over a month.

Upon "Whois lookup" we come to know that it is hosted by http://www.fastdomain.com/

What Is Threat Intelligence?

Threat intelligence is often discussed, but rarely understood. Starting with a precise definition, along with clear business goals, is essential.
