Exclamation Adobe in customer data security breach

I was reading this security alert

Adobe has confirmed that 2.9 million customers have had private information stolen during a "sophisticated" cyber attack on its website.
On the BBC news at:


And at the same time received an email from Adobe confirming my account ID may have been one of the ones affected.

If you get a similar email from Adobe Customer Care make sure to read it rather than think it is a Phishing attempt.

Re: Adobe in customer data security breach

I'm in the same place as you. Hoping the standard of the encryption they used is of a standard that is fit for purpose. Also concerned of suggestions that the hackers have managed obtain source code 'on some of Adobe's biggest products'. In the process of changing my passwords (luckily I have passwords for anything banking / payment related completely different to anything on other sites). Good on you for posting here to highlight.
