Records Breached: 

4,000 Not added to total. SSNs and financial account numbers were not accessed.

A list of over 8,000 Comcast user names and passwords were available to the public via Scribd for two months, before a Wilkes University professor discovered it over the weekend after doing a search for his identity online. Comcast is saying it looks like the result of a phishing scam and isn't an inside job, and that there are so many duplicate entries on the list that it's closer to 4,000 customers who were exposed.
