Time Warner Cable announced this week that the data of 320,000 customers may have been stolen.

The data includes email address and passwords, according to a Time Warner spokesperson. The source of the theft is not clear, according to a report from Reuters.

It does not appear that Time Warner Cable's systems were breached, and data may have been taken in a phishing or malware attack on other companies storing TWC information.
