EFF: Comcast is blocking P2P, like you didn’t know?

The Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) has released a report containing analysis of Comcast’s Internet traffic interference activities. The EFF’s study provides strong evidence that Comcast is using packet-forging to disrupt peer-to-peer (P2P) filesharing on their network.

According to the report, the EFF used an open-source packet sniffer called Wireshark to analyze network traffic while attempting to seed public domain literature on BitTorrent with a Comcast broadband connection. The tests confirmed that BitTorrent performance was being selectively degraded by unexpected TCP reset packets. Previous independent research conducted by the AP is consistent with the findings published by the EFF. (link)
