Comcast begins DNS security rollout

First in U.S. to protect customers against Kaminsky-style cache poisoning attacks

Comcast has begun migrating its customers to a new Internet security mechanism that will help protect them from being inadvertently routed to phony Web pages for pharming attacks, identity theft and other scams.
Comcast is the first major ISP in the United States to adopt the new mechanism, which is known as DNS Security Extensions (DNSSEC).
