Verizon Customers May Want to Update Their Spam Filters


Epsilon, a company that handles email databases for a large number of companies, had a bit of a security breach last week. Verizon Communications seems to be a part of the roughly 50 companies who were affected and says they have taken action to notify customers of the breach they claim has been limited to only email addresses.

Verizon has said in their email:

Epsilon has assured us that the information exposed was limited to email addresses, and that no other information about you or your account was exposed,

Oh my.
