Hi All,

Not sure if you have heard about this but last Thursday (October 4th, 2013) Adobe disclosed that they were hacked.

The following is a link to their official disclosure.


The short story is that hackers accessed 2.9 million customer records. They claim that all that data that was accessed was encrypted. The hackers also accessed part of the source code to a few of Adobe's products.

They have also posted "What you need to do" about the incident at http://helpx.adobe.com/x-productkb/policy-pricing/customer-alert.html­

I highly recommend that if you have ever purchased or registered any Adobe product from them that you read the official statement and follow their recommendations. I would urge you all to change your Adobe account password and any other sites on the internet that you have used the same password for. I would also recommend keeping a close eye on your credit card statements.

Here are some additional articles about the incident:
