Email from Xfinity : Constant Guard Alert

I recently got an email from comcast@f-secure.com ; the heading starts with Constant Guard Alert and goes on to read :

 

Dear XFINITY Customers, please read this entire message - In an effort to improve our customers' experience , Comcast has been reviewing some user accounts and sending e-mails that direct customers to an :

Account Reconciliation

 

We appreciate your prompt attention to this important security notice .

 

Question : Does anyone know what this is about ? Is it a legitimate notice from Comcast or an attempt by some outside party to get personal information .

Re: Email from Xfinity : Constant Guard Alert

It's a phishing email, an attempt to steal login and account information.

Please see http://forums.comcast.com/t5/Security-and-Anti-Virus/Comcast-Email-Phish-or-Legit-How-to-Tell-and-ru... for more information about identifying and reporting phishing emails.

Examples of recent phishing messages can be found at http://xfinity.comcast.net/constantguard/Alerts/ under "Top Phishing Scams".
