Time Warner Roadrunner Email Login Displays Passwords Upto 320,000 Users
It has been found that Time Warner Roadrunner email login has displayed passwords of more than 320,000 users. These email addresses had been stolen because the company faced an online hacking scam. The company confirmed this in news papers and TV. However some members of this company have not yet confirmed whether more than 320,000 customers lost their passwords.
They told that the scam involved permanent customers across the markets. It has been noted that Time Warner is one of the biggest email account provider at Maine. Besides this it has 16 million professions and residential customers in 29 states as per details provided by its service website. This company is an adept provider of telephone, television and internet services.
Nathalie Burgos the spokesman of Time Warner stated in her email that the company tried its best to contact its email customers through direct mail. Thus their company has taken nice and tough precautions to protect their accounts by updating their passwords.
This has been regarded as a very strong alternative or solution. We have seen that many people have email accounts at Time Warner yet they face risks of losing their passwords. In the opinion of Burgos a great problem arises if the email account of any user contains sensitive and very secret financial data.
Nathalie Burgos also stated and told the press that all emails including their passwords were lost due to attack done by malware, fatal software and viruses seen across the web.
Security Breach For My Time Warner Road Runner Email
Time Warner customers also gave their sensitive information to third parties who had partnership with the email service providing company. In the words of Burgos the email service company had no concern with Time Warner cable systems and processes. The company has not yet evaluated how the secret and sensitive information was stolen. Yet it got proved that the systems of Time Warner faced a breach.
On Thursday Ed Sihler the expert of internet security told that breach of such contracts depended on the way that was used by Time Warner customers to login into their email accounts.
If these customers used their email accounts to use credit card services, income tax details and other kind of sensitive data then a big calamity may arise. Sihler stated these facts so well because he had worked as the technical director at the University in Portland.
If any kind of email account is used as a junk mail then there is very little threat of having its password to get stolen. However we suggest that users should keep on updating their passwords to avoid hack of email accounts.
Joshua Silver a specialist in cyber security at a law firm at Portland told that the customers of Time Warner covered about 2 percent of customer base of the company. This customer base got counted upto 16 million people. Joshua also showed some other national incidents like breach of Target Brands during 2013 due to which nearly 17 million people got affected in an adverse way.
This recent password theft at Time Warner Roadrunner email login has made all of us realize that a customer may even not know when his email account may get compromised if any hacker reads his couple of emails. A great problem may arise when somebody starts sending spam emails after hacking an email account.
According to Sihler the best solution to protect email accounts from hackers is to keep on changing their passwords from time to time. In the words of Burgos you can get as many tips of how to surf the web in a secure and safe way. We suggest you not to share your bank accounts data on sites of social media.
