Pretty sleazy way of trying to get me to DL their norton bloatware:

"Dear Comcast Customer,
The Constant GuardT service has identified that one or more of your
computers may be infected with a Bot. Please read on.

A Bot, also referred to as malicious software or malware, is used to gain
control of your computer, typically without your knowledge. Online criminals
can use Bots to collect your personal and private data, such as Social
Security numbers, bank account information, and/or credit card numbers by
monitoring your keystrokes. This can lead to identity theft and fraud.

We strongly recommend you go to the Comcast Constant Guard Center at
https://constantguard.comcast.net for instructions to help you remove the
Bot from your computer(s). We also advise that you keep your computer(s)
protected by performing regular Operating System updates and by using Norton
Security Suite anti-virus software.

If you would like to learn more about Constant Guard, please visit

Sincerely,

Comcast Customer Security Assurance"

If you're interested, I have one up that is free and available for
anybody to use @ http://www.tot-ltd.org/TT-Livescan.rar .  The current
version makes use of 3 databases (blacklist, whitelist and default
port list) that has a combined total of over 40 million definitions.
The download is only 100KB in size (uncompressed to approximately
1.7MB in size).  You will need winrar, and a few vb6 runtime files
installed.
