Comcast protecting their backsides

Comcast provides my cable broadband service.

They left an automated message last night about the MSBlaster worm, and I received an e-mail about taking further steps.

The e-mail "phoned home" - in addition to downloading 6 images, it sent a request to{1st suspicious ID}&ecid={2nd suspicious ID}.

Covering their backsides by monitoring who reads the e-mail, are they?
