I have and if you have an Adobe account it's highly probable that you have been too. Check it out here, pwned.

Cheers,

That might explain the massive number of spam mail Iíve received in recent months.  Constant notices that I have facebook notifications, unpaid invoices, messages from whatsapp, verification of paypal and itunes or ebay, etc.  Iíve again begun inheriting gigantic amounts of cash from unknown deceased uncles in Africa.

I delete all that junk, but I know people who have clicked on the supplied link.  They usually do that only once.

For the sake of it i just changed my password at the adobe site...

I am sure we will have a lot of incidents of breached android telephones for only 5% has the latests updates necessary.
I think those companies should give you at least 5 years of updated software. Or it should be enforced by law.

The Adobe hack was a couple of years ago and well known (just checked on your link and that is Adobe hack refered to).  I had to change all my passwords after that incident.

The "new" release is just a combination of several previous breaches put in one place.  Of course, if you didn't know about the previous breach then you should take some action now :-)
