Adobe Security Bust

Long is it beknownst to humankind that Adobe and security are some kind of eternal paradox, considering how they bring you (their “valued customers”) to the edge with leaky Flash Player updates or Creative Cloud nagging you with constant sign-ins making you think you are sending your credentials to some scamster’s underpowered fake server. Now it seems it really has bitten them hard in their fat lazy behind. Letting your source code be stolen from directly under your own nose is just not cool. What does that mean for you? For the most part not much, but if you feel so inclined, you may want to check your Adobe account and give it a new password and also keep an eye on it for the next few months. Beyond that there’s not much you can do, either way. If the source code of some apps got infected, Adobe will have to fix it and provide the necessary updates just like they have to revoke security certificates and code signatures. The annoying part will be that for the next few months you will probably be seeing a lot of patch updates for some apps that will keep you busy….
