OMG! Adobe has just disclosed that one of their servers has been hacked.
Although investigations are still ongoing, the company is sharing details on what they believe could have been accessed. It’s pretty huge!
Seems like the hackers have obtained encrypted data for as many as 2.9 million customers, and while Adobe stresses that the data is encrypted and that they “do not believe the attackers removed decrypted credit or debit card numbers”, that data — encrypted or not — is definitely not something they want to be floating around in the matrix. Neither do Adobe’s 2.9 million customers.
Adobe has yet to disclose how that data was encrypted, so it’s currently unclear just how secure anything really is at this point.
