7.5 million users of Adobe Creative Cloud got their data compromised. There was such information exposed as member ID, account creation dates, subscription and payment status, emails, local time zones.

The revealed details can make the users vulnerable to target attacks, as the leaked data is sufficient for phishing incidents.

The reason for the breach was an unsecured database. Adobe was informed about the issues by Paul Bischoff, privacy advocate, and VPN expert, and protected the database promptly.
