Comcast Data Breach – What to Do
On December 8, 2023, Comcast notified millions of its Xfinity customers that hackers had stolen a treasure trove of their personal information from Xfinity’s internal systems. The notice instructs all of Xfinity’s 32 million customers to change their username and password, change their login information for any other accounts that use the same username or password, and enroll in two-factor authentication. Comcast stated in a legal document filed with the state of Maine that 35.8 million people were affected by the breach, and news reports suggest that all Xfinity customers may be affected.
