I got a replacement Comcast modem this past Thursday from Comcast, and the installer mentioned the utopia.net malware worm possibly coming into my Mac's DNS via the Comcast modem. After he left, I saw my DNS read "utopia.net" instead of "comcast.net". Two calls to Comcast Security = two replies that they never heard of it. But they "kicked it upstairs, and a few hours later my DNS returned to "comcast.net".
That evening my bandwidth faded, and after I did a robo telephone refresh of the modem, "utopia.com" reappeared. I then called Comcast Security, and again was told they never heard of it.
...and this has wreaked havoc on my system!!!
Yet I see a thread on "utopia.net" on Xfinity Help and Support Forums dating back to early 2016.
Perhaps I should alert the media?
