Adobe has been hacked and compromised.

PC World -

Adobe has shut down Connectusers.com, a community forum site for users of its Adobe Connect Web conferencing platform, because the site's user database was compromised.

On Tuesday, a hacker named "ViruS_HimA" claimed that he hacked into "one of Adobe's servers" and copied a database containing email addresses, password hashes and other information of over 150,000 Adobe customers, partners and employees.

To support his claim, the hacker published a limited set of records for users with email addresses ending in adobe.com, .mil and .gov.

"As soon as we became aware of the hacker's post, we launched our investigation, which (based on the information leaked by the hacker) led us to determine that the hacker appears to have compromised the Connectusers.com forum site," said Wiebke Lips, Adobe's senior manager of corporate communications, Wednesday via email.

The hacker leaked 644 records, but he claimed to have accessed the entire forum database, Lips said. "The forum has a total of about 150,000 registered users."

"We are in the process of resetting the passwords of impacted Connectusers.com forum members and will reach out to those members with instructions on how to set up new passwords once the forum services are restored," Lips said.

Apologies - this information is incorrect and was based on an incident in the past . Bercause the 5 minute edit window has expired I can not delete it. If there is a anyone at DP review capable of deleting this post please delete it.

This was posted in good faith from a link I saw but did not realize it was an old story, to the best of my knowledge Adobe has NOT been hacked.
