    Those that are Adobe CC users, be on the lookout for phishing scams heading your way. Just in case your info is one of the 7 mil+.

    Just a little heads up in case any one missed it over the weekend. Although I think the breach was from earlier this month.

    Things like this are one of the reasons I started using random number and letter strings as usernames with account info such as Art Dept.

    I wonder if we are going to be start getting a LifeLock account along our subscription services.

    This amazes me, SaaS companies deal with data, that's it. This is the downside of being a subscription only business. This is something that companies need to take seriously. Of course, consumers have to take it seriously as well.

    Info was out there for a week, that's a long time to plug up a hole in security.

    I may be a little tinfoil hat on the issue, but it seems like a whole lotta companies that really just don't cut it with securing that data (both their own and ours), even though they are essentially in the data business now.

    Wildwest, try not making your headline clickbait... put some legit identifier in the subject line...as if you were writing an e-mail.

    It was a legit identifier, it really was something that I missed over the weekend. I couldn't resist that one. No willpower what so ever.

    Ironically, that is how I would do a subject line in an email (for better or for worse) with content along this nature.

    Back when the Office of Personnel Management (government employee database) was breached I got a 5 year subscription to a credit monitoring service with up to like 2 mil in compensation if anything went wrong. Equifax was offering monitoring service after their breach. So I can see this becoming a standard. Someone will likely start selling data breach insurance to tech companies.

    This is the key take-away. Securing data cost money and eats into profit!

    Cost of doing business with this type of business model.

    This just goes to show you that no one is really going to value your data more then you (at least in theory, some don't seem to value it at all, while I get the majority of stuff about us has already probably been willingly releases, this to me is just pretty bad, but that's just me and I'm probably in the minority) at least with regard to securing it.
