This is just a quick memo to all of my subscribers who use Adobe Software products. Last night I read the following article which indicated that Adobe’s servers were compromised and nearly 3 million customers may have had their Adobe ID’s, and Credit Cards stolen. If you use Adobe products please read the article http://news.cnet.com/8301-1009_3-57605962-83/adobe-hacked-3-million-accounts-compromised/
Today I received an email from Adobe notifying me that my account is among those potentially affected. As inconvenient as that may be, I’ve already taken steps to avoid further problems related to this event and you should too. Here’s the link to Adobe’s official announcement. http://helpx.adobe.com/x-productkb/policy-pricing/customer-alert.html with instructions on how to reset your password.
Also, if you shared your Adobe password and email account with any other accounts such as LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, you should update all of those passwords as well. It’s a good practice to have different passwords for all of your online accounts but it can be difficult to keep track of. Here’s a link to our Password Generator tool, we created some time ago, to help simplify the process http://www.amistudios.com/ami-tools/password-generator.php
