Getting back to the original post of Adobe hack - i'm sure plenty of Adobe customers are pretty pi**ed ...

The Adobe email merely apologised and suggested users changed all their password and username protected accounts that use the same info.

This could be almost every web account for some people !!!!!

For this amount of hassle, i'd expect free Creative Cloud for at least twelve months for all customers !

If you use identical passwords for multiple services where payment is involved, then shame on you! There are multiple tools for managing passwords if remembering 8+ characters is a hard mental task for you :-)

Yah nice one bud, blame the victim and not the perpetrator. It's a scandel when we are encouraged to put our trust in a corportation's security and then find that it is sub standard and is so bad that it puts their trusted customers at risk. Adobe have failed in their duty of care....end of story. They are not worthy to host cloud based data solutions with a leaky account control. It underlines a poor management and coding culture within the Adobe corporation.

What I actually find worse is the theft of the source code and the "probably not manipulated source code" of some of their products (ColdFusion and Acrobat Writer as far as is known). This will mean very very sophisticated security issues and hacks for the affected products.

So let me get this straight. If you did not get the email from adobe about it, then your particular info was not compromised? Maybe I got lucky for once because I never got a email about it.

Or maybe someone hacked your account and are now getting your e-mails . . .

You could call NSA and ask....

Adobe's products, historically, have been very commonly pirated. Why are people surprised that their security was breached? If they can't lock down their software, it shouldn't come as a surprise that they can't lock down access to their customers accounts.

Thanks for the link Diane.

I got an email this morning at 2:04am EDT, my password was reset. I have now reset it.

I'm a bit worried about my credit card though !? I think I'll call my bank and report the card as stolen, that way they will cancel it and issue a new one with a new number, just to be on the safe side !?

Beyond the standard form letter apology I received, I would like to know what measures Adobe has taken (obviously they won't get too specific and tip their hand for the next hacker) to prevent this from happening again.

They've decided to remove all encryption and store customer data on open servers.  That way, hackers will not be tempted, as there'll be nothing to hack.   :P

I received the email this morning from Adobe. How wonderful. I am already paranoid because the dept of revenue in my state-South Carolina--was hacked last year. The government offered free credit monitoring for all residents believed to be in danger (most residents). I say "free" , but of course us taxpayers will ultimately foot the bill for it. I do use a different password on everything. No need to make it any easer for hackers (as my slack state gov did). :'(
