There's also an article in the NY Times: http://mobile.nytimes.com/2013/10/04/technology/adobe-announces-security-breach.html?from=homepage

From what I'm seeing, they're thinking a lot of the source code has been hacked for a NUMBER of their products, which opens the possibility of future security breaches (my limited understanding).

I'm NOT a happy camper; I eat, live, breathe Adobe products 'round the clock, not to mention paying for my Cloud installments with a credit card. I've read suggestions that we go through and change all of our passwords everywhere. 

Sigh.

I received an email this AM from the mothership detailing a breach at their web server. although the immediate question referred to whether unencrypted credit card details had been compromised. they say they don't think so, but coincidentally the card I used for paying installments to creative cloud got hacked in september. the attack took place in or before august.
