Is Time-Warner associated with Charter Communications?  There's a thread
on Slashdot about their name servers being hijacked to point all requests
to a set of rogue proxy servers.  Another thread suggests a nasty form of
spyware is responsible.

The rogue proxy servers are apparently a man-in-the-middle password sniffer
of some type affecting at a minimum HTTP and SSH.

I got the above link by email from someone following this thread but not
set up to post to NANOG.  If true, it makes the thread more NANOG-relevant
than a simple case of poor service from a cable company.
