Ahh good ol hijack

I just love how easy it is for a company to hijack your browsing session...

Wonder if this works using a third party DNS with DNSCrypt? :P If not guess I would never know..

Well, at least Comcast gets an excuse to use their message injection system/notification system:

»tools.ietf.org/html/rfc6108

next step will be deep packet inspection and/or advertisement message injections ("Did you pay your bill yet?" "Want to have this site load faster?" "Hey, we noticed you're downloading [xyz]")

Won't help you if you are misidentified as a DMCA violator. What if someone clones the MAC address of your cable modem or Comcast does not get their dates straight and you are assigned an IP address used by a pirate.

what makes you think they can legally inspect anything done inside a VPN?

remember folks, comcast is not the one doing the monitoring here, its the CCIs hired firm. The question still remains that if their proof does not stand up in court(Mediasentry was recently told their "evidence" does not reasonably identify a person, only a subscriber household), how can anyone send DMCA or other private notices threatening action of law if there is no evidence to support it?

Not just legally...assuming your vpn is encrypted, there is no way for them to decrypt it. That's the whole point.
