Comcast Hacked - Denies accounts have been compromised

Thursday, May 29, 2008



Hackers took over and defaced Comcast Corp.'s Web portal for several hours overnight, leaving a cryptic message on the site that the company's 14.1 million subscribers use to access e-mail, news and technical support.

A "Page under Construction" message appeared on the main page Thursday morning.

The front page of Comcast.net went down shortly before 11 p.m. EDT Wednesday and was replaced with a note saying the hackers had "RoXed" Comcast, according to postings at BroadbandReports.com.

Comcast spokeswoman Jennifer Khoury said late Thursday morning that the hijacking had been reversed, but some users were still unable to access Comcast.net and Web-based e-mail.

There was no indication that e-mail or other private information was compromised by the attack, Comcast said.

Do you believe that last statement ?

(We do not)


The hackers appeared to have seized control of the Comcast.net domain name at registrar Network Solutions Inc. and redirected it to other servers, Khoury said.

More technically, early indications are that someone hacked Comcast's registrar account at Network Solutions, changing the authoritative DNS servers for comcast.net re-routing portal visitors to IP addresses in Germany or elsehwere. Where once Comcast's portal sat, users were instead greeted with the following text

Though there's no indication that user privacy is jeopardized, you may want to avoid using Comcast webmail until things have been completely cleared up. Comcast tells us they're aware of the problem.

"We are aware of the problem and working to get this resolved as quickly as possible," says one technician. "Our sincere apologies for any inconvenience this may be causing." According to the tech, Comcast DNS servers have been corrected, but it will take some time for the fix to propagate out to other servers.

"Depending on the TTL for those servers, this could take several hours and in rare cases, longer," he says. Several users tell me that when they called Comcast customer support, they were told that the outage was due to "routine maintenance."

To prove what one hand is doing while the other one does not, Comcast issued this statement :

"Last night users attempting to access Comcast.net were temporarily redirected to another site by an unauthorized person," he says. "While that issue has been resolved and customers have continued to have access to the Internet and email through services like Outlook, some customers are currently not able to access Comcast.net or Webmail." Douglas says that network engineers continue to work on the issue.

"We believe that our registration information at the vendor that registers the Comcast.net domain address was altered, which redirected the site, and is the root cause of today's continued issues as well," he says. "We have alerted law enforcement authorities and are working in conjunction with them."

Let me say now that anyone using this service that has had the same password for some time now should really consider changing it, the current problems with Comcast web email security solutions proves that it’s vital for us to protect ourselves with effective online caution. Word of warning for those wanting to change passwords, DO NOT use birthdates, pet names or even family names, USE mixed up letters and numbers even down to using uppercase and lowercase characters. I would recommend you changing passwords once a month to be on the safe side,

You should be changing passwords weekly, but even security freaks don’t do it that often. Once or twice each month is really not sufficient, but it’s a lot better than nothing. It’s a simple email security solution that will help you avoid the problems that Comcast email users are having right now.

We think Comcast security has been hacked to pieces and they will deny any facts about a security violation.

It does not take this long to repair this problem.

Besides in their statement they say "We believe".

Who is we ?

There is no facts here. No assurances !

Did they Lie to some degree or cover-up the truth ?

I saw this story last night online. I did not find it "News worthy" to post at that time.
