Cable provider to scan it’s Internet users for malicious traffic

I think this is a step in the right direction although some may say it’s overreaching and other will probably think it’s not enough. Pn thursday October 8th Comcast announced Comcast Constant Guard, a web-based Service Notice to provide information to customers that have been infected with malware.  What they are attempting to do is help customers.  First by advising them that they may be infected with a bot, and second by helping them through the removal process.

Now if all the ISPs could take the information they already have & provide it to their customers to help them in this same manner I could focus my attention on more fruitful IT endeavors!
