Brad Arkin, Adobe’s Chief Security Officer, revealed yesterday that thieves penetrated Adobe’s network stealing the personal information of 2.9 million customers. The criminals stole customer names, encrypted credit or debit card numbers, expiration dates, and other information relating to customer orders. The crooks also stole Abobe source code. Among the programs whose source code was stolen are Acrobat, ColdFusion and ColdFusion Builder.
In response to the theft Adobe is resetting relevant customer passwords, notifying customers whose credit or debit card information may be involved in the incident, notified the banks processing customer payments for Adobe and contacted federal law enforcement.
