Adobe Systems Hacked

We just learned that Adobe is communicating with customers that have an account on their website that their systems have been ‘illegally entered’ and that user IDs and passwords may have been compromised.

So if you have an Adobe account (you almost certainly do if you have purchased any Adobe products in the last couple of years), and you haven’t received an alert from Adobe yesterday or today, you should change your account password ASAP.

And if you use that password elsewhere, it should be changed everywhere. I won’t give you the standard admonition not to use the same account ID and passwords at different sites – I know everyone does anyway – but hackers will routinely try credentials at a variety of sites hoping to gain access somewhere.
