Re: The smell of "eh"?
One of our PR folks (Charlie Douglas) just posted this on another site. Thought it may be interesting in relation to the question at hand:
Based on an initial analysis of the document, we have identified that only about 700 of these accounts are real. The list was likely generated as the result of a phishing scam or some kind of malware that affected customer computers. We have no reason to believe that any Comcast systems have been compromised. The site has removed the document and we are in the process of freezing access to any customers account on that list. We are also in the process of proactively contacting customers to let them know about this situation and the steps they can take to help protect themselves. It's precisely because of this kind of thing that we have been providing free security software and tools for years to help customers protect themselves from phishing scams and malware. The authorities have been alerted and we'll help with any investigation.
