Adobe.com security breach
We have sent a message to those usernames in our .uwosh.edu domain whom has Adobe identified, but since it seems not everyone has been notified by Adobe, and we may have campus users who had accounts with Adobe that did not use their uwosh.edu email as their Adobe user name, we felt it would be worthwhile to inform all campus users.
If you are affected. You should have received an email from Adobe.com with instructions on how to reset your password and what other precautions to take.
Adobe has stated that any credit card numbers that were compromised were fully encrypted and unusable, but as with any security breach, it should be treated seriously.
If you click on the link in the email message, it will go to Adobe.com (always check that a link in an email takes you to the URL it's suppose to.) Alternately go to Adobe.com and click the Security Alert in the right hand column which leads to a password reset.
Adobe's site explaining the breach and actions you should take are at http://helpx.adobe.com/x-productkb/policy-pricing/customer-alert.html?promoid=KHQGF
If you have used the same password for other accounts such as your email, please change those also since a common strategy for hackers is to attempt to enter other systems that might use your email address as a username.
