CNet: Adobe hack attack affected 38 million accounts.

We have completed e-mail notification of these users. We also have reset the passwords for all Adobe IDs with valid, encrypted passwords that we believe were involved in the incident — regardless of whether those users are active or not.”  Erm, I was never notified by email. I received a physical mailed notification that looked like an advertisement. When I received it, I went to Adobe.com immediately, and found they were requiring me to reset my password. Yet I had been running Creative Cloud with my existing password for a few weeks since the hacking.

Whether or not you’ve been notified by Adobe - if you haven’t reset your password, do it now.

Adobe’s servers got hacked.

What you need to know.

Later: What really interests me is that Adobe posted this at 8AM. Many of the big tech sites are only noticing now [3-4:00 MST]. I caught it through a tweet at 2:00. I wonder when the other hard news orgs will start noticing?

New category added: Security.

Only because I keep looking for it, thinking I’ve already got it in the list. Empty at present, but will fill fast, methinks.
