  1. I have a business license with Adobe products and after they got hacked my credit card had 2 unauthorized charges for child books and smoke accessories. I called Adobe since its their fault and they did nothing. I then canceled my card etc…

  2. I got one of these email and thought it was spam because it had an internal link to a password reset page which is exactly what we are told to avoid.

    Adobe should have simply told people to log in to their account at adobe.com and change their password there.
