Adobe Confirms Security Breach

Adobe Hacked

adobeAdobe recently had to reset the passwords of all its customers after a breach in their security. They verified the source code for some of their products had been accessed; but they were not aware of any exploits being used to target their products that might have contributed to the success of the attack.

Adobe also confirmed 2.9 million of its customers may have been affected by the data breach as their financial information may have been compromised. The data consisted of items such as encrypted credit or debit card numbers, expiration dates and “other information relating to customer orders.” At the moment, there is no way to know if that information left their systems. The intruder may have just accessed the information. He might have made a copy; but even if he did, he would have to decrypt the information in order for it to be useful.

The information may have been accessed as far back as mid-August.
