Time Warner Cable has sent notices to 320,000 of its customers throughout the U.S., advising them to change the password to their email account out of concern that someone may have gained unauthorized access to that information. The telecommunication company said it was notified of the vulnerability by the FBI, but there’s no evidence to suggest that there was an actual breach.
“Approximately 320,000 customers across our markets could be impacted by this situation,” explained Eric Mangan, director of public relations. “To protect the security of these customers, we are sending emails and direct mail correspondence to encourage them to update their email password as a precaution.”
