Adding to Hank Sim's report, I encountered another type of private information exposed by Suddenlink during the period January 27-30, 2011. I was logging into Suddenlink's web email. I logged in as usual, but instead of my login name, another person's login name would appear, together with the full email address and a list of all the messages in the person’s inbox. I got different persons on different tries. I did not attempt to read the messages, so I do not know if this was possible. But clearly, anyone with an email account at Suddenlink should know that their email could have been compromised if they had messages on the server during that time period.
