Adobe hack affects 38 million users, not 2.9 million
A security breach at Adobe Systems earlier this month is more widespread than first reported.
Adobe now says hackers stole information from at least 38 million customer accounts, including part of the source code to Photoshop, the widely used photo editing software. According to Adobe spokeswoman Heather Edell, they believe a lot of the breached data consists of inactive IDs and test accounts.
A few weeks ago, on October 3, Adobe reported a cyber-attack on 2.9 million user accounts where encrypted personal data were stolen along with source code for Acrobat, ColdFusion and ColdFusion Builder. Edell said the company is still investigating the breach and is notifying affected customers.
If you're a Creative Cloud subscriber and haven't already done so, it's a good idea to change your Adobe password and monitor your financial accounts. Go to Adobe's Customer Security Alert page if you have more questions and learn what to do if your account was part of the attack.
