Nothing in cyberspace is sacred
Wired is reporting that Comcast continues on its merry way blocking traffic to and from p2p programs.
The Electronic Frontier Foundation, based in San Francisco, has released a study describing Comcast’s antics.
“Comcast is essentially deploying against their own customers techniques more typically used by malicious hackers (this is doubtless how Comcast would characterize other parties that forged traffic to make it appear that it came from Comcast or its subscribers,)” write the authors of the new report. “In other words, Comcast is essentially behaving like a telephone operator that interrupts a phone conversation, impersonating the voice of one party to tell the other that this call is over, I’m hanging up.”
