Adobe source code stolen

Adobe Systems Inc. has announced that on the third of October they became the victim of a cyber attack. According to unofficial reports, it is estimated that the attackers gained access to the internal network of Adobe and stole the source code for a currently unknown number of their software products. Experts assume that the attacker stole the source code of the popular ColdFusion application and the Acrobat series applications.

In addition to the source code, it is estimated that the attackers accessed over 3 million records of credit card users. The attack was observed in late September when one of the internal servers detected files of over 40 GB, which consisted of the source code, and information on credit card users. Earlier this year, a similar attack has been successfully launched against LexisNexis, Dun & Bradstreet and Kroll. Experts believe that the same attackers attacked Adobe.
