Multiple companies trying to mitigate Adobe data breach

Giants including Facebook and Amazon warning customers to evaluate their passwords

Adobe Inc., makers of prominent creative software such as Photoshop and InDesign, was the target hacker activity last month that leaked the passwords of millions of its users. But while those attacks only managed to capture information from Adobe’s networks, the effects are being felt throughout the Internet community and prompted many to take additional action.

Companies including Facebook, Amazon, and Microsoft are taking additional measures to ensure that their user bases remain unharmed by the Adobe data breach. Many have requested that user reset their passwords, fearing that the passwords shared between their platforms and Adobe software could lead to a security breach of their systems.
