    Time Warner Cable said on Wednesday that up to 320,000 customers have had their accounts compromised.

    The ISP first learned of the problem after the FBI contacted them about email addresses and passwords that might have been compromised.

    Eric Mangan, public relations director for Time Warner Cable, told Salted Hash that impacted customers would be contacted via email and direct mail. Those contacted will be encouraged to change their passwords.

    "Approximately 320,000 customers across our markets could be impacted by this situation. To protect the security of these customers, we are sending emails and direct mail correspondence to encourage them to update their email passwords as a precaution," Mangan said.
