Thought I was hacked

Had a bit of a scare this morning while reading my feeds. I clicked on a link to the a New York Times article and was presented with this message:
Thought I was hacked, 2008 02 17 0955
So my first thought was I clicked on the wrong link. I tried it again and got the same message. Now I was worried. Was my MacBook hacked? Was my router compromised. I switched from NewNewsReader to Safari was able to get to the Apple web site. I then did a Google search on Patriot Media and DNS and found an entry on broadbandreports.com forum. Apparently the cable company had an issue with DNS early this morning for a short period of time. I was able to reset my router and things are now fine.
