Per this recent article blog article on NYTimes.com
it seems that over 8,000 Comcast e-mail addresses and passwords were exposed in a file that was posted to a website dedicated to writing. I do not know what if the affected customers were located in a particular state or across Comcast’s territory.
Whether or not you are a Comcast Internet customer, now would be a good time to change your email password and your passwords for sensitive sites – like online banking – if you haven’t done so in the past 12 months. Comcast customers can change their password online by logging in at http://www.comcast.net
E-mail me for more specific instructions if you don’t know how to change your password on another service.
