Cloudy with a Chance of Storms: Adobe Breach

With Adobe’s release of its Creative Cloud, news of a security breach couldn’t come at a worse time. Adobe’s focus is getting customer’s to buy into the cloud through its VIP license program. Adobe’s VIP license program is subscription based, this allows customers to stay cutting edge with receiving all of Adobe’s currently releases. Customer’s that chose not to go into the Creative Cloud, will stay at Creative Suite 6, without the ability to upgrade that version. Customers, if they so choose, will always have the ability to upgrade into the Creative Cloud, and by doing so they will have immediate access to the VIP and all of the latest versions available. Creative Cloud allows workers to share files through the cloud and keep the work stored on their hard drive as well. One has to wonder how the news of Adobe’s unfortunate hacking will affect the release of its Cloud. At this time it’s estimated that 38 million users were affected that their ID’s passwords and account data was compromised. Noting as well that Adobe had several of their source codes stolen giving users access to Acrobat, Cold fusion and Photoshop.
