NetworkWorld: Adobe hack shows subscription software vendors lucrative targets

by Gredd Keizer, ComputerWorld.com

Computerworld – Adobe on Thursday admitted that hackers broke into its network and stole personal information, including an estimated 2.9 million credit cards, illustrating the lucrative target that software-by-subscription providers have become to cyber criminals, analysts said today.

“Even before they went to the cloud, bill-you-monthly firms have been a target,” said John Pescatore, director of emerging security trends at the SANS Institute, and formerly a Gartner analyst focused on security. “This has been an issue for [Web] hosting providers for years. There are two reasons why. First, they have a trove of credit cards. And second, you know that the cards are good.”
