Advertisements I just recently switched to Cablevision / Optimum Online (since I moved to an area that doesn't have FIOS ). The cable installer set us up on moving day, and since all our stuff was in boxes but we didn't want to miss any shows, we hooked our TiVo (S3) up directly to the cable modem. In retrospect, I'd never do that with a PC, but I guess I figured it's a TiVo! It's Linux! What could happen? So what happened is that a few weeks later, OO shut off our internet, claiming that they received complaints of spam originating from our IP address. I checked the dates of the complaints: The ONLY internet-enabled device running at our place when this started was the TiVo. There was no wireless access point or router, just TiVo -> cable modem -> evil Internet cloud. Has anyone heard of this happening? And can anyone recommend an easy and effective way to verify if this is in fact happening, or if this is a spurious report that Cablevision is basing this on? And if the TiVo really is infected with a trojan, would reformatting it through the software clear it up or would I need to reformat the drives? Thanks for any help.
