I received the bogus email and went to the Adobe site to confirm it, which they explained that it was bogus. I'm always suspicous of these things until I check it out and never click on the links. That being said, today(24OCT13) i received, in the snail mail, a letter from Adobe about the security breech. Has anyone else received such a document. Portions of the letter:
"We recently discovered that, between Sep 11 & Sep 17 an unauthorized third party illegally access certain customer order information....."
...we beleive the third party likely removed from our systems certain customer names, payment card experation dates, encrypted payment card numbers, and other information relating to customer orders. In addition, the third party used our systems to decrypt some card numbers."
Note; the italics are mine.
The letter continues that I should monitor my accounts and to enroll "at my opption" in a "complimentary one year credit montoring membership and provided a unique activation code. Again, considering what has happened, I'm cautiously skeptcal. Any comments?
