Time Warner Cable was recently contacted by the FBI who informed the cable and internet provider that 320,000 of its customers’ email addresses & passwords may have been stolen.

According to a spokesperson at Time Warner, roughly 320,000 customers could be impacted by this situation. Those possibly impacted are being contacted by the company via email and direct mail and are being encouraged to change their email passwords as a precaution.

While Time Warner has not yet determined exactly how the information was acquired, there’s no sign that its computer systems were breached.

The FBI has concluded that all accounts impacted are centered around the Roadrunner service, warning customers with emails ending in rr.com to reset passwords immediately.

The company told SecurityWeek, “The emails & passwords were likely previously stolen either through malware downloaded during phishing attacks or indirectly through data breaches of other companies that stored TWC customer information.”

In addition to reaching out to customers possibly affected by this breach, Time Warner has also provided customers with tips on how to avoid phishing schemes and how to navigate the web safely on their website.
