Major Security Breach at Adobe
Adobe announced yesterday that it has been a target of a major security breach. The attackers gained access to sensitive data belonging to 2.9 million customers, including user IDs, passwords, and encrypted credit card information. Adobe is contacting customers who have been affected by the security breach and resetting user passwords, and is also working with law enforcement to track down those responsible for the attack. If you have an Adobe ID, it is highly advisable to change your passwords on any website where you may have used the same email address and password.
