    OMGosh! Did everyone see this?

    Adobe was hacked and the info of 2.9 MILLION customers was compromised including encrypted credit card info :scared

    I did not receive an email saying my account was affected, but when I attempted to log in it did require me to reset my password. I'm not on Creative Cloud and don't have a credit card associated with my account, but anyone who does should keep an eye out for fraudulent charges, and everyone should definitely change their password right away even if it wasn't reset by Adobe...better safe than sorry!

    I was on the phone with Site Lock yesterday, who takes care of my blog maintenance and the person I was talking to told me about this. He said it was huge!

    So glad I haven't made the move to the cloud yet. I was just seriously considering it a few weeks ago, but couldn't take the plunge.

    I haven't joined the cloud yet, was thinking to do it soon and so glad I haven't yet. That is scary.

    Wow.. I might want to look into that because I notice my credit card hasn't been authorizing payments lately - I haven't been using it so it's not maxed out but I do use it to pay a number of services (including the cloud, mailchimp, northridge publishing) on a monthly basis ..

    I was a bit scared that this email was a phishing scam so I took a different route to change my password. I'm watching my card account too. Let's cross fingers.

    I got the email too. I thought it was phishing at first, but I did go change my password. Argh! What a pain!
