Email and Password Data Stolen from Adobe

Adobe has reported that passwords, unencrypted emails and password reminder questions and answers were stolen from Adobe leaving customers wondering if other accounts will be compromised.   As we have stated time and time again people reuse passwords on most sites, so the stolen emails and questions are all that are needed to gain access to most web sites.

In many instances people write a hint to themselves that says “same as my Facebook password” or “same as my bank password.”

“The best advice is for people not to recycle the same password in multiple places,” Mr. Krebs said.
