Recently Adobe had a security breach where they claimed that roughly 3 million user accounts were affected. At the time they said that some accounts even had encrypted credit/debit card information stolen. When the announcement came out Adobe sent out a mass e-mail informing the people affected that their accounts were compromised. The breach was a blow to Adobe’s Creative Cloud service which moves their software from a onetime purchase to a monthly subscription.

Did Adobe suffer a second breach?

On October 4th Adobe was forced to send out almost three million emails with the unfortunate news that their network had been attacked, breached and data stolen. The data from that theft included account IDs as well as encrypted passwords and credit/debit card information and even source code for Adobe products. The attack happened not all that long after Adobe pushed their users to a subscription based license for their products. Once a large number of people had joined the Creative Cloud service Adobe was an even more attractive target and due to their history or ignoring security the attackers were able to get in and grab what they wanted.

Adobe is jumping on the revenue stream bandwagon and has announced that they will no longer release boxed versions of their creative suite products. Instead they are pulling everything back into their Creative Cloud and forcing users into a subscription service. In other words they are joining Microsoft and a few others in the attempt to make your software turn into a recurring charge instead of a one-time purchase. This new business model seems to be catching on with many larger software developers and we do expect it extend down into game developers in the next few years.
