Acronym (ETLA?), pronounced 'surt' I believe, for 'Computer Emergency Response Team' - a group which supposedly responds in realtime when clients' networks are under attack by crackers, worms, viruses, &c. They also release advisories and the like when they see fit.

See also 'The CERT is born'.
This has been a slashdot public service announcement.
