Adobe Compromised User Accounts

I railed against Adobe’s decision to make their products subscription-only. It’s great if you will be upgrading no matter what, every year, but not so great for users like myself. Now there is an even more sinister reason why Adobe’s subscription-only products are bad for users, not just for people like me.

It’s common knowledge that the Adobe user accounts have been compromised and their poorly encrypted user account passwords and user emails have been compromised. I recently got an email that said as much. Now I have my web host telling me my Adobe account was compromised. Wha…? How do you know Web Hosting Company? Did Adobe make my email address available to everyone one now? What kind of security is that?
