(The Hosting News) – A high profile hack on tech giant Adobe is now considered larger than previously thought.
The company now estimates that the security breach affected 38 million of its user accounts – a jump from the 3 million initially thought to have been hit.
During the incident, an unknown hacker succeeded in accessing Adobe usernames and passwords.
The intruder also successfully accessed the source code for some Adobe products.
“We have completed e-mail notification of these users. We also have reset the passwords for all Adobe IDs with valid, encrypted passwords that we believe were involved in the incident — regardless of whether those users are active or not,” stated Adobe representative Heather Edell via a report from CNET.
Meanwhile, there is good news to come out what would otherwise be a horrific incident for any online presence: To date, Adobe hasn’t noticed any unusual activity on any of the affected accounts, Edell emphasized.
In the incident’s immediate aftermath, the tech giant confirmed that it had reason to believe that hackers had removed credit and debit card data pertaining to orders.
