Adobe Hack Results in Personal Details for 2.9 Million Users Leaking

Adobe announced a significant security breach that saw hackers access data on 2.9 million Adobe customers. The attack was announced yesterday by Adobe's chief security officer Brad Arkin. According to Arkin, the data stolen by hackers included encrypted credit and debit card numbers, but Adobe doesn't believe any decrypted card numbers were stolen.

Arkin wrote, "[Hackers] removed from our systems certain information relating to 2.9 million Adobe (ADBE)customers, including customer names, encrypted credit or debit card numbers, expiration dates, and other information relating to customer orders." Adobe says that it is in the process of notifying customers is card information was involved and has reset relevant customer passwords.

Arkin also notes that the hackers were able still source code for a number of Adobe products. He wrote, "We're working diligently internally, as well as with external partners and law enforcement, to address the incident." Security experts believe that the source of the Adobe attack is also the same group that was behind attacks earlier this year on data aggregators LexisNexis, Kroll and Dun & Bradstreet.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
