Adobe announced Thursday that one of their servers was hacked. According to Adobe, among other compromises, “we believe the attackers removed from our systems certain information relating to 2.9 million Adobe customers, including customer names, encrypted credit or debit card numbers, expiration dates, and other information relating to customer orders. At this time, we do not believe the attackers removed decrypted credit or debit card numbers from our systems.”
Adobe has indicated that they have contacted (or are contacting) affected customers. These affected customers will be required to change their passwords. For those who Adobe believes credit card information may have been compromised, Adobe will offer “the option of enrolling in a one-year complimentary credit monitoring membership where available.”
Whether you are contacted or not, I would suggest changing your password immediately, and keeping an eye (as always) on your credit card statements.
To change your password, log in to your Adobe account, then go to My Adobe (top right), My Information (left).
