    Frankly, I'm thinking *all* Adobe's accounts were hacked....each and every one of them. It's a sad commentary that masters of computer coding like Adobe can be so thoroughly broken into as they were and it's doubly disturbing that 2+ months on they're still not sure exactly how deep this compromise goes. I'm thinking whoever did this hack was more than just a group of college students having fun. I'm thinking it's just the first indication of things yet to come.

    I also tried an email address I know adobe didn't have and it came back clear. The email I use at adobe comes back as hacked. For the guys that aren't sure if you have an adobe account or if it was really involved in the hack, you can click in the link that LastPass sends you and see your password hint that was stolen. That hint (if you had one) may remind you of a forgotten adobe account. In my case, it was a wrong password hint from several years back, but it was a hint I recognize. I don't think adobe offered to store a password hint last time I changed my password.

    Isn't 150 million a really large number? Maybe that's their world wide customer base?

    So virtually every Adobe account was hacked? What is Adobe doing about even if I changed my account profile now?

    I recently bought Lightroom but used Paypal, so who knows. I'm not going to use the utility - if they really hacked Adobe then they could hack this other site and I'll be giving my personal info to some Russian hackers.

    Regardless, thanks Dave for the heads up.

    Yeah, I just checked, and it was an old trial download that I had. I have since changed the password, so it's all good now.

    Yup. Like they're compartmentalize their customer email database?? I don't think so.

    And once you're in, you're *IN*; and if you took the time and effort to GET in, you're sure as shinola going to make it worth your while. I grant you I've never done anything like this but I imagine the time it would take to suck down Adobe's entire email database, once you have access to it, is probably measured in seconds.

    I have been unable to check mine as work does not allow me to do the install... Tonight, but it seems strange that almost all are getting hacked...

    I also got the message saying I was hacked and I never purchased anything from them. I do use Adobe Flash Player though.

    I think everyone who ever gave Adobe an email address got hacked.

    Makes sense as most web customer databases use email address as initial entry point. How else would hackers get to the personal data/CC info without going through that entry layer? From what I understand financial institutions are the only retail entities who spend anything close to data security requirements it takes to deter determined hackers with intent and resources.
