Altice USA Inc, provider of Optimum cable television and internet services in the New York tri-state area, can now be included in the long list of companies that have become victims of phishing scams. An official from the company states that a breach that exposed the personal information of over 12,000 employees and an unknown number of customers happened in November when an unauthorized third-party gained access to official email account credentials. The stolen credentials were used to remotely access and download the contents of mailboxes that contained password-protected reports that included information about employees, past employees and a limited number of customers. Upon finding the breach, Altice USA has reported the incident to federal law enforcement agencies.
