Comcast pulls plug on customers

By on

Internet service provider Comcast is warning users to clean up their PCs or face having their web connection cut off.

The US firm's ultimatum follows a similar decision by Scandinavian ISP TeliaSonera, which sent warning letters to customers exploited by spammers.

Spammers were reported to have used customers' PCs as 'zombies', which acted as a spam distributor.

Comcast warned customers to keep their PCs clean after some of its IP addresses were discovered on anti-spam blacklists, which stopped some users sending emails.
