Adobe Hacked and Almost 3 Million Accounts are Compromised

Adobe has been hacked and 2.9 Million accounts have been compromised with credit card numbers stolen, among other things.

This is obviously not the first time we hear about a company being hacked and it is not going to be the last. The victim this time is Adobe with almost 3 Million customer accounts compromised. Besides credit card numbers, customer names, encrypted credit car or debit card numbers, expiration date among other info that has to do with customer orders. Adobe said this attack was a sophisticated one and that hackers also had access to customer IDs and passwords that there encrypted. Adobe also said that no decrypted credit or debit card numbers were pilfered.

Adobe has also been reseting the passwords of the compromised accounts and informing the customers who information was stolen. Adobe has already apologized for the incident and has said that they are working with authorities and other groups in order to get to the bottom of this attack. So far Adobe has not said when they think they will be able to figure out who might have been responsible for this attack. A source code crafted into its products has also been stolen but Adobe doesn´t think that there is an increased risk of hackers getting into the programs their customers are using.  If Adobe comments anything else about the attack, we will definitely let you know.
