Comcast Launches Bot Detection Service
Users will get in-browser alerts if suspected bot activity seen
In October of last year we wrote about
a new bot detection and notification system Comcast was working on that would alert customers of possible infection and guide them through cleaning their systems. Comcast has dropped us a line to note that the company is now launching this system nationally this week. Dubbed the Constant Guard Bot Detection and Notification service, users will see this alert
in browser notifying them of suspected bot activity on their account. A Comcast network engineer has stopped by our forums
to note that the service is being launched in two phases (phase one will be just email alerts, phase two will involve in-browser alerts), and to field any questions you might have about the technology that's being used.
