Mystery web attack hijacks your clipboard


Almost definitely Flash-based

Most likely it is a small Flash (SWF) embedded object on the page. It continuously copies data to the clipboard.

I encountered this once when taking an opinion survey.

Comcast hack leaves users without email


Inbound email also diverted

The DNS hack appears to have affected incoming email also. I was CC'd on an email which should have come at 11:30pm (28th May), but didn't know about the email until someone responded to the group today and I got their message. Several hours earlier I had no problems getting email from the same individual.

I guess the hackers got a truck load of email addresses also.
