Adobe Reminds Users to Reset Adobe ID Password
Aside from Flash Player, I haven’t used Adobe software for years. Nevertheless, the bad penny that is piczilla just sent a notification that my Adobe ID password has been reset as result of a recent hack.
Important Password Reset Information
As we announced on October 3, 2013, we recently discovered that an attacker illegally entered our network and may have obtained access to your Adobe ID and encrypted password. We currently have no indication that there has been unauthorized activity on your account.
To prevent unauthorized access to your account, we have reset your password. Please visit www.adobe.com/go/passwordreset to create a new password.

So, if you haven’t yet updated your Adobe ID password, a few weeks ago ago would have been best, but today will have to do.
For what it’s worth, the same hackers that compromised Adobe have just hit PR Newsire.
