Adobe Cyber Attacks Compromise 2.9M Customers Information

A series of cyber attacks by shrewd hackers have compromised Adobe customer information. Over 2.9 million clients have had their IDs and passwords hijacked due to this unfortunate incident.

Adobe is the giant firm that lies behind such phenomena as Photoshop, InDesign and Acrobat. It was recently hit by a series of cyber assaults that left its customers high and dry. Their IDs and passwords were literally pulled like a rug from beneath their feet. 

The nefarious group responsible for this heinous act has gained access to countless names, credit and debit card numbers, expiry dates and info related to orders. And while Adobe says that credit and debit card numbers were probably not spied upon by the hackers, nothing can be said for sure. The company is advising many customers with credit and debit cards to change their settings in order to avoid any mishaps relating to cash availability. 

A year long complimentary credit monitoring membership will be offered to the unlucky few who got their smart cards numbers exposed to scrutiny by the criminal element. Besides changing passwords, Adobe is recommending its clientele to reset their passwords on any site that they may have visited. 

Cyber attacks are a shameful fact and they remain an intractable problem in the online business environment. They are literally the elephant in the room. Adobe is looking forward to solving the security breach, but it won’t be an easy task. The Cloud System was an integral part of Adobe and now it has been given the shock of a lifetime thanks to irresponsible hackers.   

Adobe also states on its blog, "We are also investigating the illegal access to source code of numerous Adobe products. Based on our findings to date, we are not aware of any specific increased risk to customers as a result of this incident."
