Malware Threat-Level Service with Automated Emails?

I just received an email from one of the folks at the office who was concerned about the Java Zero-Day vulnerability. I did a little research, and a couple of the workstations at the office, were, in fact, at risk. Is there an email service with which I can subscribe from which I'd receive an automated email if a malware threat suddenly appeared that exceeded a certain threat level. It's important that the threat level comes from a credible source. (I have no interest in whatsoever in warnings from the Associated Press or Reuters, for whom every malware threat is code-level-red.)

I have not heard of such a service and I get a lot of emails that "covered" this issue. I have excellent security and I do not get viruses, but I did heed this warning, disabled Java, and restarted my computers.

This was a thought and judgement process, not an automatic process.
