Default Adobe.com hacked. Reset your password.

Adobe have announced that they've had a security breach where thieves hacked in and stole customers' user names, passwords, and (possibly) credit card details.

If you have an Adobe account, you should log in and change your password.

More info:
The Adobe home page: http://www.adobe.com
The Adobe customer alert page: http://helpx.adobe.com/x-productkb/p...?promoid=KHQGF
Brian Kreb's blog dated yesterday 3 October 2013: http://krebsonsecurity.com/

Obviously your Adobe password should not be similar to that of other important websites or your email account.

Note that what was stolen was still encrypted so they'd have to defeat a very high level encryption, no easy task.

Not that I'm saying that Adobe may not need better server security.

Bear in mind also that although hackers are more likely to target servers than your individual PC that the security on servers is way higher than on any home computer.

Besides they don't need to hack most individual computers .... just send the user an email saying Click here to see something incredible ....
