Adobe deals with data breach affecting 2.9m customers

Updated: Jan 25

Adobe has been hit with a massive cyber attack, where hackers obtained customer IDs, passwords and encrypted credit card information of more than 2.9 million customers. Adobe believes the hackers also breached source-code data of several Adobe products, including Acrobat and ColdFusion.


The software giant behind products like Photoshop, InDesign and Shockwave Flash announced last week they had been hit by two separate attacks targeting customer and company information. Adobe is in the process of sending password-reset e-mails and customer security alerts to affected customers to try to mitigate the damage, but there's a bit of a problem with that approach.


According to independent security reporter Brian Krebs, Adobe has known about the breach since Sept. 17, and they believe the attack happened sometime in mid-August. Considering those customers' information has been in the hackers' hands for nearly two months, resetting passwords and canceling credit cards at this point may be moot.


Adobe's investigation is still in its early stages, and the company hasn't finished unearthing the full scope of what data may have been compromised.
