    Exclamation Adobe fesses up to hack but fudges on details

    Two months ago crackers stole source code for Acrobat Reader, Publisher, and ColdFusion and data for 2.9 million user accounts. We still don't have a clue about user passwords

    If you use any Adobe product or have registered any products with Adobe, you have the right to jump up right now and scream, "Where's Walter White when we need him?" Brian Krebs at Krebs on Security and Alex Holden at Hold Security contacted Adobe a week ago and told them that, gosh, 40GB of uncompiled and compiled source code for Adobe products was sitting on a server used by a gang that's been stealing data for months...

    What I really love about this is the Acrobat Reader source code in the wild, so somebody can dissect it to see how a goddamn PDF-reading software can be that bloated.
    The whole Acrobat software is even worse, in CS4 Premium it came on its own DVD, with the other DVD having everything else (Photoshop, Illustrator, Dreamweaver, Flash, InDesign, etc.)
