Description

In an attack described as “sophisticated” and “coordinated,” Adobe said its corporate network systems were breached by hackers.

The company said the attack also affected other unnamed companies.
Adobe did not provide any other details except to say it was aware of
the breach on January 2, 2010.

Here’s the brief statement from Adobe:

Adobe became aware on January 2, 2010 of
a computer security incident involving a sophisticated, coordinated
attack against corporate network systems managed by Adobe and other
companies. We are currently in contact with other companies and are
investigating the incident. At this time, we have no evidence to
indicate that any sensitive information — including customer,
financial, employee or any other sensitive data — has been compromised.
We anticipate the full investigation will take quite some time to
complete. We have and will continue to use information gained from this
attack to make infrastructure improvements to enhance security for
Adobe, our customers and our partners.

It is not yet clear if this incident is related to the Local Business Center breach that affected Google earlier this week.
