Does that chart include all email routed to trash by your spam filter?
See my earlier post re: Sling
This. Find something interesting/useful to worry about.
Got two emails from TiVo, one chase, and one Disney. I'm sure I'll get a few more, as I have accounts with several others that have been hit.
I wonder if Comcast uses them? I've had Comcast for less than a year, and NEVER use my email address with them, but have started getting spam on it in the last two days.
Well I got one (and only one) notice from TiVo. I don't think it will matter much I have been using the same email addresses for over a decade and I am on so many different spammer lists that I normally get at least 2 and sometimes 3 copies of each spam email. My Spam folder gets 100-200 messages a day so a few more will make no difference.
See, I just couldn't handle that. It's great that 200 spam msgs a day don't bother you (I wish I had your patience!) but that would make me go insane (these days, it doesn't take much).
Before I set up filters in gmail to kill some of the frequent spam (blue pill, etc) my spam folder always had over 10,000 messages in it. (Now it's typically slightly less than 4,000).
Got an email from Disney too. Unfortunately they had my two primary email addresses.
We got one from TiVo and a pair from College Board. CB does all the SAT score reporting.
The one I got from TiVo was for an address I used for the newsletter and nothing else. As I unsubscribed from that a while ago it might be easy to detect a spam increase. I doubt this will mean much to me. The spam filtering I use is very good.
Got three - and am seriously considering shooting myself to avoid spam
Just got the Disney one a few minutes ago.
If it was to the mail inbox I would agree, but the poster mentioned it was going to their spam box where they likely never see it.
I am in the same situation on number of spam messages, but gmail has a great spam filter and I never see them. I just see numbers on the spam box go up and once in a while I will scan real quick to see if anything legitimate got caught. Really no big deal.
That chart displays spam sent to my address, but did not make it to my inbox.
Over that same period, I think I remember only deleting 3 or 4 that got through the filter.
I've only had 1 spam message get through since this incident.
I opted out of TiVo emails ~5-6 years ago, so this was the first email I've received from TiVo in a long time. What a nice reminder that they still had my email details.
I've not gotten one of these emails...from any company. I guess that's a good thing.
Two of mine were caught in my Spam filter.
TiVo has issued a press release regarding this issue:
The breach was with Epsilon, a partner we work with to send certain opt-in e-mails such as promotions.
Epsilon's breach affects many large companies, as previously noted in this thread. Some online coverage is here:
We take issues like this seriously and apologize for the issue.
I do want to emphasize that to my knowledge we have NEVER given Epsilon ANY information other than first name and e-mail address. That means that your TiVo Service Number, street address, credit card information, etc. are NOT breached.
The biggest things to watch for as a result of this breach are increased spam and phishing attempts.
Please let me know if you have any questions.
Again, please accept our apologies for this issue.
Thanks Stephen, So far, I've not heard anything from the other companies. I'm glad to see that Tivo does take this seriously and is willing to send us a heads up to be on the look out for phishing attempts.
Yeah, kind of sucks TiVo was one of the first to acknowledge it and gets all the grief.
Seems crazy that there are still companies just getting around to sending out notices.
