Customer Data at Adobe Has Been Compromised

Adobe’s Brad Arkin:

Given the profile and widespread use of many of our products, Adobe has attracted increasing attention from cyber attackers. Very recently, Adobe’s security team discovered sophisticated attacks on our network, involving the illegal access of customer information as well as source code for numerous Adobe products. We believe these attacks may be related.

The names, passwords, and credit card information of up to 2.9 million accounts have been compromised, in addition to the source code of some of Adobe’s products.

Update: Brian Krebs of Krebs on Security discovered the breach. The stolen source code is from ColdFusion and Acrobat. Maybe the hackers just want to give Acrobat a less sadomasochistic experience.
