Time Warner Cable says personal data of 320,000 customers may be at risk
CLEVELAND– Time Warner Cable says the emails and passwords of as many as 320,000 may have been leaked.
The cable and Internet provider said the information was likely collected through malware or through data breaches at companies that store email addresses for Time Warner, Reuters reported.
Those with email addresses ending in “@rr.com” may be affected, according to NBC News. Customers should receive info from Time Warner Cable on how to reset their passwords.
“Our understanding is that the compromise had nothing to do with TWC’s systems or processes,” Time Warner said in an email to customers. “TWC has found no evidence of a breach in its systems that operate and secure email accounts for our customers.”
The FBI notified the company that customer data may have been compromised.
