Internet Access - what is going on with Comcast or Yahoo browser??

Whenever I try to access certain Internet Web site using the Comcast Home / search Page or Yahoo Web/search page, I get a screen lockup and have to do a CONTROL/ALT/DELETE to see that the requested site is not responding and then I terminate the program.. HOWEVER... when I try to access the same web sites using MSN Home Page.. everything works fine...  This only happens with certain requested WEB pages such as the USPS (United States Postal Service) tracking page and the the UPS site..  Any idea what is going on??

The Comcast site has been attacked by hackers. I had troubles trying to access it too, so I contacted their customer service and found out they came under attack. The lady said "we are aware of it and working on it".

 

Lots of reading about it too on a google search for "Comcast hacked"; or similar wording....
