Adobe Hacked Posted by Sean @ 08:53 GMT

Do you have an adobe.com account?

If yes… you'll want to sign in and reset your password. Why? Because Adobe has been hacked.

From Adobe:

"Adobe customer IDs and encrypted passwords on our systems. We also believe the attackers removed from our systems certain information relating to 2.9 million Adobe customers, including customer names, encrypted credit or debit card numbers, expiration dates, and other information relating to customer orders."

Encrypted passwords and credit/debit card numbers, et cetera. So therefore you may also wish to monitor any cards which were on file at adobe.com. Resetting your password is a straightforward process.

Fortunately, my account was for testing and I used a unique password made up of random letters and numbers.

Unfortunately, I still have an adobe.com account, even though I looked into deleting it a few weeks ago.


Also of significant interest is the fact that some source code was compromised.
