Oh, just wait for Gary Huff.

He'll tell you that it's the normal course of things in today's world, that the operative phrase is "caveat emptor" -- never mind that you're not "empt"-ing anything, you're renting it -- and that How On God's Green Earth Can You Possibly Hold Adobe Responsible When Such Things Have Happened Before To Other Reputable Companies?

The fact that a hacker got in AT ALL is ample reason for concern. I in my humble position am well aware that nation-states (read: China) hack into corporate systems in the United States and elsewhere.

What concerns me the most is that Adobe is putting on a face that says, "Well, these things happen and we'll take care of it."

I don't believe those *((^*^%$%^$(&_(*^(^'s for a second.

[Dave LaRonde] "He'll tell you that it's the normal course of things in today's world, that the operative phrase is "caveat emptor""

It is and that phrase still holds true.

However, now that it's clear that Adobe didn't do their due diligence in protecting their servers from this kind of intrusion, it's fine to be upset with them for that.

Of course, most of the anger here is from non-CC subscribers, so it's not like Adobe is losing any additional money over this yet.

Excellent point.

however the fact that they wrote a letter basically saying - hey, a thing we're not too sure about appears to have happened, it looks like lots of financial information was taken, you should probably look into it wouldn't exactly generate tons of trust for the prospective customer - that letter sounds nearly lackadaisical.

Its nearly like apple with maps - adobe are in a territory a mile outside of their basic competence - they are demanding monthly live hooks into my finances, and it sounds like they couldn't organise a secure financial transaction system piss up in a banking brewery.

they sound like feckless, badly prepared, not particularly bothered by it all morons.
