Adobe Hacked 2013

Major Security Breach in Adobe System Inc.

Adobe Systems Inc on Thursday announced that their computer system was hacked. According to the statement issued, credit card information of 2.9 million customers and source code of it's most popular software Adobe Acrobat, ColdFusion and ColdFusion Builder has been stolen by the hackers.

The attack on Adobe results in the removal of customer names, encrypted credit or debit card numbers, expiration dates, and other data relating to customer orders.

With the theft of source code, security experts are worried about more cyber attacks on the users using those software products. Source code will provide the hackers a close review of the program and they can figure out loop holes and new flaws that could be used to launch unknown cyber attacks to the users of Adobe software.

The company said that they are notifying their customers by email and resetting the passwords for affected customers. Adobe said it is working with banks and federal law enforcement. Adobe alerted banks processing payments for Adobe to help protect customer accounts.
