By Jacki Viles     Oct 4, 2013 in Internet
Adobe has announced a data security breach affecting their customer accounts, including usernames and passwords and credit card information.
The extent of this breach is so far unknown except to say that they have suffered a cyber attack which affected 2.9 million customer accounts and the loss of product source code. Cold Fusion and the Adobe Acrobat family of products, which is used worldwide, appears to be the products in question.
Adobe is reporting that Brian Krebs of KrebsOnSecurity with the help of fellow researcher Alex Holden of Holdesecurity are credited with helping the company target the breach of source code.
KrebsOnSecurity is reporting that they had found a large stockpile of Adobe source code on a server that has been used in the past by highly sophisticated hackers who had in the past exploited data depositories for Lexis Nexis, Dun and BradStreet and Kroll. They reported their findings to security officers at Adobe.
