Last week, Adobe’s security team discovered that their network had been attacked and that the attackers gained access to product source codes and information on 2.9 million customers. Breached customer information included names, encrypted credit/debit card numbers, expiration dates and other information relating to customer orders. Adobe does not believe that hackers removed decrypted credit or debit card numbers from their network.
Brian Krebs, author of the security blog Krebs on Security, has written that the attackers appear to be the same group responsible for attacks earlier this year on LexisNexis, Dun & Bradstreet and Kroll.
