If you feel like you or someone you know has been the victim of an online security issue, here's how to let the right people know.
Child pornography is illegal, and any use of XFINITY Internet or the Comcast.net website in connection with this material violates the Acceptable Use Policy and Terms of Service. If you believe you have encountered photographs, videos, or other content online that contains child pornography, please report this to Comcast by taking the following steps:
Comcast will process the request and work with law enforcement authorities as appropriate.
If you feel that a child is in physical danger while online they should be instructed to tell a trusted adult first and then to report the issue to the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children at: http://www.cybertipline.com/
If you feel you are in immediate danger, contact your local law enforcement immediately and report the incident to ensure your physical safety.
While Comcast Customer Security Assurance may be able to assist, you will be required to contact your local law enforcement agency if you are interested in pursuing legal action, including the identification of a Comcast customer.

To ensure the Comcast Security Assurance team has the right information to process, please do the following:
By sending this information, you help us refine our spam filters for the Comcast email system. This helps to prevent spam in the future.
If email is unable to be delivered to a Comcast.net email address, it's possible the sender's email provider is blocked as an anti-spam precaution for Comcast customers. The error message the sender receives contains a URL. This URL links to an FAQ with valuable information regarding the issue and steps necessary to request removal.
Email administrators can submit the blocked IP address to the Comcast Security Assurance department to determine if the IP address is eligible for removal by completing the Blocked Provider Request Form. Requests submitted through this form are reviewed on a 24 X 7 basis
When reporting spam, it is critical that you include the email headers of the spam message.
Please do not forward the spam message: this will remove the email headers.
Firewall logs should be sent to the Internet Service Provider who controls the network associated with the IP address attempting to connect to your computer.
Send the firewall logs to the abuse email box of the Internet Service Provider responsible for the IP address.
If you need help determining the Internet Service Provider responsible for the IP address in question, visit www.arin.net. Entering the IP address will return the information of the responsible party.
