    FCC investigating website flaw that exposed mobile phone locations

    The U.S. Federal Communications Commission said on Friday it was referring reports that a website flaw could have allowed the location of mobile phone customers to be tracked to its enforcement bureau to investigate. A security researcher said earlier this week that data from LocationSmart, a California-based tech firm, could have been used to track AT&T Inc (T.N), Verizon Communications Inc (VZ.N), Sprint Corp (S.N) and T-Mobile US (TMUS.O) mobile consumers within a few hundred yards of their location and without their consent. Senator Ron Wyden, an Oregon Democrat, on Friday had urged the FCC to investigate, saying on Twitter that a "hacker could have used this site to know when you were in your house so they would know when to rob it.

    KeyBanc On Comcast: Uncertainty, Cheap Valuation Makes This A Buying Opportunity

The potential acquisition of either Sky or Twenty-First Century Fox Inc (NASDAQ: FOXA)'s entertainment assets would result in Comcast being a "global media leader" and generate operating efficiencies, the analyst wrote.
