I received an email and a phone call from my ISP stating that they detected a virus on my computer(s) and that I'd better take care of it in 48 hours or they will suspend/cancel my account.
I called them and asked them just what the hell are they trying to pull?
First of all I have a router, you can't scan my computer to say I have anything.
Second, if I have a virus, it's my problem. If your server protection is that shitty, then it's not my problem. There are hundreds of thousands of people who use their computers everyday loaded with viruses....and their ISP's don't threaten them.
She proceeded to ask me invasive questions like, "do you use a P2P program, do you allow people to come in your house with their computer and ride on your network, etc.
I was so pissed I filed an FCC complaint against them. Their bullying and scare tactics should not be allowed to continue. Went to the BBB too....
Have any of you had this experience? What are your thoughts on this?
Isn't the fact that a cable connection is the most unsecure connection taken into consideration here? I always tell people...go get a router right away. Sticking that cable line into your nic card is like sticking a dirty needle in it. A router is the best protection on a cable connection.
Thanks for your thoughts and comments in advance,
