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.
