Unlisted Comcast customer details exposed by the thousands

2014/08/26

Softpedia - (California) The personal information of more than 74,000 Comcast customers in California who had paid to have their details remain unlisted, including names, addresses, and phone numbers, was exposed due to a fault in an agreement with a third party that distributes and publishes Comcast residential directories. The company stated that the leak appeared to occur between July 2010 and December 2012, and affected customers were offered refunds and in some cases additional remediation actions.
