Last month Adobe announced a data breach that eventually expanded to include 150 million passwords as well as source code for Adobe Acrobat, Adobe Reader and Adobe Cold Fusion. Due to the popularity of Adobe’s product line, the ripple effects of the breach may impact a variety of industries.
Adobe was fortunate to have been informed of the breach after their data was found by security researchers, as many breaches go undetected. What can companies and their users do to protect themselves against similar breaches?
Listen to episode 109 of our Security Slice podcast and hear Dwayne Melancon, Ken Westin, Craig Young and Tim Erlin discuss why leaked passwords should be like stolen shopping carts, why some Adobe users may not be aware of that their account data has been leaked, and why “throw away” passwords can be bait for something bigger.
