For a while, I can see it.....but we have to Keep Up. Our clients and jobs demand it. Fabricators, manufacturers, printers, digital media. 
I can remember when I held out from getting the new Microsoft Office, until I couldn't open the .docx files from my clients.  They are going to force us to keep up. 

In a way, this is expected. Someone breaching the technology. Because it happens, it forces the industry to protect itself better, and thus it's clients. 

I wish there wasn't such risk, but.....

Hi all,

At the risk of sounding like a Luddite,  I will raise the question about delinking from the cloud for a while, at least in terms of the level of one's commitment to Adobe subscription services.   That is to say, if you already own, say Adobe CS5 or CS6 in the out-of-box-pre-subscription level, would it not make sense to resume using these slightly older products, suspend your on line cloud-based subscriptions, and change your passwords?

Just a thought.
