If you have an account with Adobe it might be the time to change the password you use on Adobe and maybe the same on any other sites you use. As today Adobe has announced they have been hacked and 2.9 Million customer accounts have been compromised.
Adobe will also be contacting you if your account has been compromised and initiating password resets. Also if customers credit cards were effected Adobe if offering a one-year complimentary credit monitoring service.
Source code for an as-yet undetermined number of software titles, including its ColdFusion Web application platform, and possibly its Acrobat family of products was also taken in the Adobe hack which has been ongoing since August sources suggest. Adobe explained in the press release today relating to the hacking attack.
“As a precaution, we are resetting relevant customer passwords to help prevent unauthorized access to Adobe ID accounts. If your user ID and password were involved, you will receive an email notification from us with information on how to change your password. We also recommend that you change your passwords on any website where you may have used the same user ID and password.
We are in the process of notifying customers whose credit or debit card information we believe to be involved in the incident. If your information was involved, you will receive a notification letter from us with additional information on steps you can take to help protect yourself against potential misuse of personal information about you. Adobe is also offering customers, whose credit or debit card information was involved, the option of enrolling in a one-year complimentary credit monitoring membership where available.
We have notified the banks processing customer payments for Adobe, so that they can work with the payment card companies and card-issuing banks to help protect customers’ accounts.
We have contacted federal law enforcement and are assisting in their investigation.”
