'We have not yet determined how the information was obtained, but there are no indications that TWC's systems were breached,' said Eric Mangan, public relations director for Time Warner Cable. 'The emails and 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, including email addresses.' If this breach is like many others, expect that number of affected customers to grow, too.
