Adobe breach far worse than thought

This just in from "Adobe said in early October that it believed hackers accessed names, encrypted credit card and expiration dates and other data for about 2.9 million customers. But in addition, its investigation has now confirmed that attackers “obtained access to Adobe IDs and what were at the time valid, encrypted passwords for approximately 38 million active users,” according to an Adobe spokeswoman."

The issue with source code theft, Acrobat, Acrobat Reader, Cold Fusion, and Photoshop, is that the bad guys can go through the code, line by line, to find vulnerabilities and start exploiting them long before anyone knows what’s going on.

If you're a CC subscriber and ignored the letter that they sent requesting you change your password, you'd best log in an change it very soon.
