How can I pause and rewind live TV using the Spectrum TV app?
Spectrum TV App Supported Devices
As I've yet to find someplace/someone to address a security issue and as an Automated "Chat" was totally useless I'm posting here with the hope that perhaps someone who can actually do something about it sees it.
Today I received an email that supposedly came from Spectrum but it looked very suspicious to me so... did Spectrum send the below? Please let me know:

Good evening @lco11en1 , I am looking into this now with your login information. I just wanted to say real quickly that I edited out your personal information from the message because this is a public area. Will be right back.
Thanks I appreciate both things from you. I must admit that I was pretty put out by the nature of the email, so much so that I really didn't about what to do or no do- so thanks again
@lco11en1 , yes that email did come from us as per the notes on your account. I would strongly advise following the advice given in the email and run the Antibot scanner as soon as you can. You can use the one located at the URL provided or have a trusted local tech professional help.
