I have a Seagate Harddrive attched to my Xfi that contains music for my Sonos system also connected. Starting today I have recieved 35 threat messages that says Comcast has blocked malicious from China, Moldova and the US. All within the past 3 hours. I click help me fix it and it says to restart the device, which I did. I also restarted the xFi. It also says to update the firmwear, which on the Seagate says is up to date and then to isolate it. I turned it off, but now cannot listed to music. What going on here? How is my external HD being attacked?
ProfessorHawk -- Thanks for reaching out. I reviewed your other post regarding this issue. Can you please clarify - did you have any Port Forwards set up? (If so, did you remove them?)
You can check your Port Forwards in xFi, by navigating to the Network Tab > Advanced Settings > Port Forwarding.
I spoke toan Xfinity network "expert" and was told all pop-up from the Xfinity app as well as notifications on the xfinity.com are false and should be ignored. She had be delete the app from my phone and reinstall and told to no longer visit this page. Meanwhile the attacks keep coming.
I'm getting a big runaround. I was eventually sent to The Customer Security Assurance who said I need to contact Cisco to get the firewall logs off of my xFi modem. I called the number that was given 888-553-2447 and Cisco says I need a Cisco ID, but Comcast didn't give me one. Isn't there anyone at Comcast that can help me?
I spent 6 hours yesterday getting the run around from one person and department to another regarding "Items That Need Attention" notifications from xFi advanced. I was even transfered to Cisco who wanted to know why I was calling becasue I'm not a Cisco customer. I requested to speak with a supervisor and was told none are available. It is now day two and I'm still getting contant notifications about IP Reputation attacks. They are non-stop. Is there anyone at Comcast that can help.
ProfessorHawk -- Thank you for the additional context. I apologize for the frustration. I will review your account & let you know when I have additional information.
I have now had 153 IP Reputation Attacks and 34 Unauthorized Access Attempts and they keep coming. All require action on my part but tell me what I can do other than restart my device, update my software/firmware, or Quarantine my device. This doesn't help, how can I get the attacks to stop? Is there a way to change my IP address so that whover is attacking will lose me?
ProfessorHawk -- Thank you for your patience. I've been working with engineering to take a closer look. I'd like to send you a Private Message with additional information.
