In an attack described as “sophisticated” and “coordinated,” Adobe said its corporate network systems were breached by hackers.

The company said the attack also affected other unnamed companies. 
Adobe did not provide any other details except to say it was aware of
the breach on January 2, 2010.

Here’s the brief statement from Adobe:

Adobe became aware on January 2, 2010 of
a computer security incident involving a sophisticated, coordinated
attack against corporate network systems managed by Adobe and other
companies. We are currently in contact with other companies and are
investigating the incident. At this time, we have no evidence to
indicate that any sensitive information — including customer,
financial, employee or any other sensitive data — has been compromised.
We anticipate the full investigation will take quite some time to
complete. We have and will continue to use information gained from this
attack to make infrastructure improvements to enhance security for
Adobe, our customers and our partners.

It is not yet clear if this incident is related to the Local Business Center breach that affected Google earlier this week.

    eather aug of 2008, been fighting your hackers.  nov of this year is the first signs of the main worm actually being noticed and addressed.  the first time in over 18 months, i finally got help. i know more of whats going on than anyone, and now got the data to back it up.  i also got the info on the hackers.   and it seems that some already arrested.  my system was its control center.  the only 2 things i cant figure out is how microsoft noticed april first worm coming out. which you know the conficters as what i know as decoys.   and 2nd is how they shut down a whole phone company giving no notice to anyone.  i know its related due to the phone system and frequency part of this worm.   they are getting in throug a flaw in a chip on the motherboard, and created a 2nd connection which you all may notice as adobe popups and dns errors. 

    i still have no control over my machines, even with help.  their attemps failed. 

    all the hacker's info comes up with a PID only.  and now they are rotating my ips.
