Time Warner Cable (TWC) recently announced that up to 320,000 of their customer email addresses and passwords may have been compromised. TWC believes the information was likely gathered through malware downloaded during phishing attacks or indirectly through data breaches of other companies that store TWC’s customer information.
As a precaution, Time Warner Cable email account users are being advised to change their email passwords as soon as possible. If you use the same email address and password combination for other online accounts, you should change your password for those accounts as well. To change a password for TWC visit here.
