    I wouldn't expect you would see a change this soon. The entities that collect these email addresses sell them to spammers. It is doubtful many of those transactions would of even occurred already. So the spammers would most likely not even have these addresses in their system yet.

    Not exactly thrilled but it seems like all other PII is safe. Oh well a perk of running your own mail server is the ability to make new email addresses as needed.

    i don't want junk more junk email either but this kind of junk email, the type I will never open isn't much of a problem for me. I hate eBay users that send crap like requesting I leave feedback or email with meaningless nonsense about nothing of significance that I must click on to read before I delete it. Some online retailers send me a lot of mail and only one out of 10 or 20 might be of interest to me, those are also a pain but there is no way to avoid that crap, which is worse than the crap I will get as a result of this issue.

    I can check the box, hit spam on 20 or 30 of these messages in a few seconds and it won't be long before all are routed directly to my junk folder. Most already are set up to go that way before I will even receive any.

    So far only TiVo for me even though there are several on the list that should have sent me something already.

    What I want to know is why the email doesn't read

    "Today we were informed by our former email service provider..."

    The problem with buying a lifetime is that they will still have you credit card info on file, from that purchase.

    That would require TiVo actually doing something. They'd rather celebrate some Blue Moon crap instead of fixing their box.

    LOL.

    Some credit card issuers have a way for you to get a "one time use" number that you can use for online purchases. ;)

    Ok well I got the e-mail now from Best Buy saying they were part of this too.

    So for all those who plan to cancel TiVo service over this make sure to never buy anything from Best Buy.com as they have betrayed you as well.:)

    I got 1 to my main addy and about a dozen to an email addy Tivo shouldn't even have on file. :eek:

    I wasn't certain if the whole thing wasn't a scam.

    I have also noticed a significant increase in SPAM since, which is likely just a coincidence. Since most of it usually winds up in the SPAM box I never really see it but on the down side I skim over it from time to time just in case an important email accidentally got put in there. It happens. I have to clean the thing out twice a day per acct to have any chance of looking through it.

    I thought the Goberment was supposed to put a stop to SPAM-mail. Or at least thin it out some. I'm on every opt out list I could find but it doesn't seem to help.

    People still shop at Best Buy? You deserve what you get. :p

    List time I bought anything from them was years before Circuit City died. Too many bad experiences with them. So if mail ever comes from them it's already SPAM as far as I'm concerned. ;)

    Just got mail from Chase about this, and at least the Chase email named Epsilon rather than just referring to some anonymous email service provider.

    Sacramento,...
    ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. -- Hackers have gained access to the email addresses of people who have signed up for Disney Destination after a massive security breach.

    Disney officials said someone got into the system of its email service provider Epsilon. They say the hackers don't have access to personal information, but people could see some extra spam emails.


    TiVo and Walgreens issued similar warnings on Saturday.

    Yes I received the same email. It is cleary amateur hour at Tivo when it comes to security. Now all of our emails are compromised and sure to be abused by spam.

    I suspect other personal information was taken. More than just our first name. Why would it only be email address and first name?

    Any spam I get on my email will be forwarded to Tivo since they do not care about their customers privacy.

    I just wonder how much of our personal information was actually stolen.
