Comcast Hacked - 30-seconds of porn during SuperBowl!

Someone [31337 h@x0rz?] apparently hacked the video feed (non-HD feed) of Comcast out in Tucson, AZ; and with 3 minutes left in the 4th quarter (after Fitzgerald had just run in for a TD) spliced in 30-seconds or so of a porn channel. Absolutely classic! This reminds me of the opening scene in Hackers... remember that movie?
"Our initial investigation suggests this was an isolated malicious act," Comcast spokeswoman Kelle Maslyn told the Star in an e-mail."
These types of hacks are old-school... but how much of it is made-up "hacker" stuff from Comcast to cover their own assets, and how much of it is real? Who knows.
