News PSA: Adobe exposed nearly 7.5 million Creative Cloud accounts to the public

Just a heads-up. No passwords or credit card details exposed thankfully.

Graphic designers, video editors, and other creatives beware: Nearly 7.5 million Adobe Creative Cloud accounts were exposed to the public.

The database containing the sensitive user info, discovered by security researcher Bob Diachenko and Comparitech, was accessible to anyone through a web browser.

The exposed user data for the nearly 7.5 million accounts included email addresses, the Adobe products they subscribed to, account creation date, subscription and payment status, local timezone, member ID, time of last login, and whether they were an Adobe employee.

While no passwords or financial information such as credit card numbers were exposed, the data is sensitive enough to cause real problems for Creative Cloud users.
