Adobe Creative Cloud hacked, credit card info and passwords safe
According to a report by Comparitech, records of 7.5 million Adobe Creative Cloud users were leaked earlier this week.
After finding the database of users on October 19, Comparitech partnered with Bob Diachenko, a security researcher, who in turn immediately contacted Adobe that same day. Adobe then secured the leak immediately. While they still don’t know how long the leak was up, Diachenko estimates that the user data has been exposed for about a week.
The following data of users were leaked:
- Email addresses
- Account creation date
- Adobe products used
- Subscription status
- Whether the user is an Adobe employee
- Member IDs
- Time since the user’s last login
- Payment status
Fortunately, no payment information, credit cards or passwords were leaked. However, the data could still be useful for phishing attacks and scams. we urge Creative Cloud users to be wary of any fishy emails or messages asking for account details even from Adobe Employees.
