    I would hope that these words never appear all connected again........ "Adobe Chief Security Officer Brad Arkin"

    I'm waiting for an email from him although I think I may be alright.
    Last week I bought Photoshop Elements 12 from them ( my first ever direct purchase from Adobe ) but I used my Amex Card through PayPal for the transaction.
    Never thought that I'd be glad to use PayPal.

    It's going to get to the point I can't use the internet because I can't keep up with my passwords.

    What it means is there's a chance if you've ever bought anything from adobe, someone might now have your credit card details and adobe site password, albeit in encrypted form .
    If however the encryption can be cracked ... Not good news.

    My suggestion is to cancel all your cards, never use a computer again and just shoot film

    Considering the security failures with Adobe Cloud, I don't think that Brad Arkin is aware of very much at all, increased risk to customers 'n all.

    I'd expect Mr. Arkin to get a big bonus this year, with Executive Management heaping praise on him for being "out in front of the issue". :wink:

    So Mr Arkin is lying through his teeth if he says: "it ain't no thang".
