According to a report of earlier this month, more than 7 million Creative Cloud user details like email ID and their subscription accounts were exposed via a data breach.
Adobe had recently acknowledged this development and shared generic details about the supposed vulnerability, without exactly giving more information about the incident.
The breach was jointly discovered by Comparitech and security researcher Bob Diachenko on 19 October, and they alerted Adobe about the issue, who immediately closed the vulnerability.
In a statement adobe said: “The environment contained Creative Cloud customer information, including e-mail addresses, but did not include any passwords or financial information. This issue was not connected to, nor did it affect, the operation of any Adobe core products or services.”
“We are reviewing our development processes to help prevent a similar issue occurring in the future” it added.
Even after Adobe was informed about the vulnerability on 19 October, the company took almost a week to publicly share the incident.
Creative Cloud is extensively used by professionals in the field of art, media and the film industry, who get access to creative solutions like Photoshop, Illustrator and Premier Pro via a paid subscription.
