Adobe Creative Cloud Users Exposed

This month Adobe has joined companies which left their database unsecured and open to anyone who knows how to look for it. Adobe Creative Cloud is a subscription service offering a full suite of most popular Adobe software: Photoshop, Illustrator, Premiere Pro, InDesign, Lightroom, and more. Its exposed database contained records of nearly 7.5 million user accounts. Thankfully, credentials and financial data were not among the exposed information.

It doesn't mean that this data is useless for attackers - it's enough to create believable and targeted phishing emails, and that is what Adobe Creative Cloud users should be wary of in the near future. Hackers may want to trick them into providing more information, such as passwords or financial data.
