Adobe have issued a security alert after they reported a pretty large security breach on their systems.
According to the Adobe blog almost 3m customer are affected.
Our investigation currently indicates that the attackers accessed Adobe customer IDs and encrypted passwords on our systems. We also 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.
Adobe have reset the passwords of the affected accounts and are E-mailing the owner of each of the accounts with more information. A copy of the E-mail from Adobe is below.
It’s Friday so a good time to check your passwords & on-line security.
I used the reset password link in the E-mail only to find that I could log in to my account with my original password. The only way it seemed to change for me was to use the standard change password link from within the Adobe site I was using. That seems to have worked ok.
