Adobe Gets Hacked!! Customers data in hackers private server

Adobe hacked!!! Reportedly one of the servers of Adobe has been hacked and seems like the hackers had access to encrypted data for as many as 2.9 million customers. You must be thinking if you are also included in this number- may be yes.

They are yet to disclose the details of hacking, even though the company says that their data are encrypted and cannot be decrypted, and seems like they still do not believe the attackers removed decrypted credit or debit card numbers.

Still investigations are on the way and there are reasons to get panic, because Adobe has shared out few details only on this issue. It’s a big one-that’s the statement now they are making. No other news.

Adobe has yet to disclose how that data was encrypted, so it’s currently unclear just how secure it is.

Meanwhile, it also appears that the hackers may have been able to access the source code for at least three of Adobe’s products: Acrobat, ColdFusion, and ColdFusion Builder. This goes hand in hand with a report from Brian Krebs this morning, who noted that he and a fellow researcher had discovered at least 40GB of Adobe source code available on a hacking group’s private server.

Beyond the obvious business implications of having your otherwise locked down source code floating around in the wild, there are potentially massive security concerns here. Once you’ve got the source code for an application in hand, it becomes much easier to dig up the stealthy lil’ security screw ups that might otherwise go unnoticed. Combine this new potential for big zero-day exploits with the many, many millions of Adobe Acrobat (Adobe’s official PDF reader) installs around the world, and this all starts to get pretty worrisome.

Adobe is trying to hide behind the veil on this issue, they must have been more alert on this. After all losing 2.9 million customers details to a public hacking groups private server is not a simple one
