Adobe has suffered what it is calling a series of “sophisticated attacks” on its network, resulting in the theft of customer information as well as source code for numerous Adobe products including Adobe Acrobat.
It is currently thought that the attackers stole Adobe customer IDs and encrypted passwords as well as personal and financial information relating to 2.9 million of its customers. The data stolen includes customer names, encrypted credit or debit card numbers and expiration dates.
As a result of the breach Adobe has reset all the relevant customer passwords, and notified the customers whose credit or debit card information was taken. Adobe is also offering the customers, whose card information was taken, the option of a one-year complimentary credit monitoring membership.
Adobe has also notified the banks that process its customer payments and have contacted the relevant federal law enforcement agencies.
