Adobe Has Been Hacked!
Adobe has confirmed that hackers infiltrated their network and stole millions of customer emails and encrypted passwords. They have further acknowledged that your password hint, name, encrypted credit card number, card expiration date, and other confidential information may also have been leaked. An analysis of the hack by Paul Ducklin of Sophos states that 150 million users have been affected and that the encryption methods used to protect customer data are extremely weak.
Was My Adobe Account Hacked?If you would like to find out if your Adobe account was one of the 150 million that were leaked, you can use the below tool:
If you have ever had an Adobe account, we strongly suggest that you immediately:
- Visit www.adobe.com/go/passwordreset to change your Adobe password.
- Check if you have re-used your Adobe password or username on any other websites and if so, change those passwords as well.
The LastPass security challenge can assist you in doing so.
- Enter your Adobe account email address below to find out if your personal information was leaked. If we find that your information was leaked, then we'll also show you your Adobe password hint.
- Check if your Adobe password hint lowers the strength of any passwords you have to any websites you use. If so, change those passwords too.
Why Should I Use This Tool?The above tool asks you to enter the email address you use to log into your Adobe account, then searches a leaked list of over 150 million compromised Adobe accounts. The list includes email addresses, plain text password hints, and encrypted passwords. This is done over a secure connection to protect you and LastPass is not keeping any information on people who utilize this tool.
If your email address is in the list then we'll email you with a link that provides you access to your leaked Adobe password hint, if your password is shared by other users, and all the password hints available for that shared password.
