Yesterday, it was reported by the BBC News that it was at least 38 million accounts that had actually been breached.
Adobe still believes only the initial 2.9 million customers had their financial information compromised. All affected accounts have had their passwords reset and will be notified via email. Adobe also reports that it has seen no indication of unauthorized activity on any of the accounts.
If you got an email from Adobe, do what it says and reset your password. If you didn’t get an email and you are worried, reset your password. Better safe than sorrow!
