Adobe advises users to users to make new password in light of an early October security breach
Posted by Kevin Gesterling
Earlier today I was looking through my e-mail and I came across an email from adobe and it was from Adobe suggesting I change my password to my account, and my first reaction was “what account?” but then I realized that I could have had one in the past and forgotten I registered it.
But since I don’t use it now, it seems a little pointless to even care about doing that immediately. However for those who might have an account there for Photoshop, Dreamweaver, etc., you might want to secure your account so you can continue to use it as you once did.
Below is a portion of an e-mail I received from Adobe, I only took the useful information or information that didn’t have details of mine included:
