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.
Not sure what this really means...though it is certainly not good news. Where are my stone tablets....
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
Imagine if they hacked PayPal.
That's about the size of it.
Shhhh! Don't even THINK that!
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".
This is exactly how bad it is:
So Mr Arkin is lying through his teeth if he says: "it ain't no thang".
