Adobe announces security breach

Adobe Inc. announced on Thursday, Oct. 3 that a recent security breach exposed the account information of approximately 2.9 million customers. This information includes:

  • customer names
  • encrypted credit or debit card numbers
  • expiration dates
  • customer order information

As precautionary measures, Adobe is:

  • resetting “relevant customer passwords” to prevent unauthorized access to Adobe ID accounts
  • recommending that customers with a Creative Cloud account (or other Adobe account) reset their passwords
  • recommending that customers change their passwords on any website where they may have used the same user ID and password

OIT Software Licensing Management reminds you to install security updates for your Adobe software (and other software) on a regular schedule.
