I feel like I'm getting spammed from my Internet provider. They claim my computers are infected by bots. The only two computers accessing my network are a Mac Mini running Leopard and an iPad 2. Until about a month ago I was also using a MacBook Pro running Snow Leopard. Has anyone encountered this? Comcast wants me to pay for their Constant Guard service.

Baloney. Ask them to send you a log of the specific traffic that is of concern. Sounds more like a marketing ploy to take some more of your money.

I wouldn't put it past Comcast.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

I've Googled it and that seems to be the consensus, but I thought I'd ask around here.
