Cloud Crisis 2013: the previous Adobe Hack was much worse than originally estimated
Security website Kerbs On Security analyzed some of the data from the previously mentioned Adobe.com hack, and found out that the hack was much worse than Adobe originally estimated. Adobe itself confirmed that at least 38 million users were impacted, not just the original 3 million estimate. In addition to the user/customer data, the hackers also picked up the source code for a number of Adobe products, including Photoshop.
As part of the remedies, Adobe is offering a year's worth of credit monitoring services, but even that has its security issues as Experian (one of the big three credit data *cough* hoarders *cough* bureaus) was punked into selling sensitive customer data to an identity theft service.
If you were affected, Adobe has an FAQ support page.
