"The company has revealed that an intrusion led to an untold number of Adobe IDs and passwords falling into the hands of hackers. But it gets far worse. Adobe says "certain information" on 2.9 million customers may have also been compromised. Among that data set are customer names, encrypted credit / debit card numbers, and expiration dates."

I guess we just have to suck this security breach up.
It's not as if we can go use some other software suite seeing as you have such a f*cking monopoly going in our industries.
What would stop a company from just "losing" everyone's data and handing off the details to some marketing company (or worse)? It seems they don't have any culpability at all.
It's shit like this that makes me miss the days of software on physical media, and makes me avoid the cloud like the plague.
- do you not buy anything online?fadein11
- Actually, no I don't.Continuity
- Oh. No, that's a lie. I do buy plane tickets online. Otherwise, no.Continuity
People are putting too much emphasis on the cloud here. Its irrelevant - its just a payed subscription and this attack could happen to any site/company that has registered users.
- yep, my adobe id is probably 10+ years old.kingsteven
They even took source code from apps, it was big.
Like Steve Jobs once said...
"Adobe: They are lazy, Jobs says. They have all this potential to do interesting things but they just refuse to do it."

They managed to steal the source code for Adobe Acrobat.
"Effectively, this breach may have opened a gateway for a new generation of viruses, malware, and exploits."
Fuck iOS 7!
- its already fucked.fadein11
Pretty crazy story. Especially this:
"Krebs said Adobe engineers are still in the process of checking on the integrity of its source code. The investigation includes looking for "anomalous check-in activity on its code repositories," which could indicate the intruders were able to introduce backdoors or security bugs or otherwise tamper with the underlying applications."
- I doubt they would admit that unless there was good reason to believe itukit2
This is all Macromedia's fault
Already received spam through my Adobe ID email address. Fastest turnover on a hack yet I've found.
They sent me another email after changing my password yesterday (I wasn't too worried about it) but this only happened ONE time that we know of right?
Get it together adobe.
- *email about changing my password.ohhhhhsnap
- and the rest of the internet that is being hacked on a daily basis.fadein11
