Adobe is at it again (source):
Security publication Comparitech has discovered, in partnership with security researcher Bob Diachenko, that ‘Nearly 7.5 million Adobe Creative Cloud user records were left exposed to anyone with a web browser, including email addresses, account information, and which Adobe products they use.’
This isn’t the first data breach Adobe has had. In October 2013, Adobe suffered a breach that affected at least 38 million users; three million encrypted credit card details were compromised and an unknown number of login credentials exposed. Source code to Adobe Photoshop, Acrobat, ColdFusion and ColdFusion Builder was also stolen in the breach.
When will I be notified that my personal information was breached as required by the European GDPR? Waiting for quick official update on what this means for me as a Creative Cloud user.
