———————————————————–

Last week Adobe announced probably the worst news ever for a tech company. Both their source code and customer lists had been stolen. EPIC FAIL!

An excerpt from the email that was sent to customers: “We recently discovered that attackers illegally entered our network. The attackers may have obtained access to your Adobe ID and encrypted password. If you have placed an order with us, information such as your name, encrypted payment card number, and card expiration date also may have been accessed. Please visit www.adobe.com/go/passwordreset to create a new password.”

“We also recommend that you monitor your account for incidents of fraud and identity theft, including regularly reviewing your account statements and monitoring credit reports. If you discover any suspicious or unusual activity on your account or suspect identity theft or fraud, you should report it immediately to your bank. You will be receiving a letter from us shortly that provides more information on this matter.
