Default Adobe hackers could have stolen up to 150 million passwords & credit card numbers!

Adobe said hackers had stolen nearly 3 million encrypted customer credit card records, as well as login data for an undetermined number of Adobe user accounts. Earlier this month, Adobe said it had actually notified more than 38 million users that their encrypted account data may have been compromised. But as reported by the media, the breach may have now impacted closer to 150 million Adobe users.

Adobe have been playing down their recent attack but this is serious stuff & totally unacceptable.

Adobe have been campaigning hard, almost forcing its customer base to subscribe to their new cloud software rental model, & this happens. It's no wonder with how this company is being managed, it has lost face & trust.

The CEO, Mr Shantanu Narayen should stand down. When he was visiting Australia recently, the media & public all thought he was a bullsh#t artist.

This is what Adobe had to say.
What happened?

Adobe's security team recently discovered sophisticated attacks on our network, involving the illegal access of customer information as well as source code for numerous Adobe products. We believe these attacks may be related. We are working diligently internally, as well as with external partners and law enforcement, to address the incident.
What do I need to do?

  • If your Adobe ID and password were involved: Adobe has already reset your password. You will receive an email notification from Adobe with information on how to change your password. We are only notifying customers whose Adobe ID and password were involved, and that process is already underway.
  • Changing your password: Change your password to one you haven't used before. If you try to change back to the password you used before Adobe reset it, that password will no longer work. If you have not yet received a notification but would like to change your password on any Adobe service, you may do so at any time.
  • Passwords and IDs for specific Adobe services: Adobe ID is a separate system from the user ID and logins associated with EchoSign, Behance, TypeKit, Marketing Cloud, and Connect Pro. If you use the same password for your Adobe ID and any of these services, please change your passwords for these other services as well.
  • Other websites: As a precaution, we also strongly recommend that you change your password on any website where you may have used the same user ID and password as your Adobe ID and password.
  • Protect yourself against non-legitimate email “phishing” attempts: If you received an email requesting you to change your password, and you’re concerned whether it is legitimate, don't click any links in the email. Instead, type www.adobe.com/go/passwordreset into your browser to be sure.

Thanks. My corporate credit card was hacked earlier this year and a considerable amount of money was taken.
