TWC Warns 320k Customers Their Data May Have Been Stolen

If you are a Time Warner Cable customer, I have some bad news for you. The company doesn't know for sure how this happened so it would probably be best to reset your password even if you haven't been contacted by the company.

Hundreds of thousands of Time Warner Cable customers received alerts this week telling them to change their email passwords after law enforcement officials notified TWC that hackers may have gotten their hands on this sensitive information. "Approximately 320,000 customers across our markets could be impacted by this situation," Eric Mangan, director of public relations, tells Venture Beat. "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."
