Isn't DNSSEC intended to prevent pharming attacks? Then the converse of
the above will occur, to the benefit of Comcast: BigBankUSA.com will see
its customers victimized through ISPs that do not validate. Comcast
connected online banking clients will be less vulnerable.
The proof of the pudding is in the eating.
Congratulations to Comcast for this leadership.
