Adobe today confirmed that one of its databases has been breached by a hacker and that it had temporarily taken offline the affected Connectusers.com website.

The attacker who claimed responsibility for the attack, meanwhile, told Dark Reading that he used a SQL injection exploit in the breach.

Adobe’s confirmation of the breach came in response to a Pastebin post yesterday by the self-proclaimed Egyptian hacker who goes by “ViruS_HimA.” He says he hacked into an Adobe server and dumped a database of 150,000 emails and passwords of Adobe customers and partners; affected accounts include Adobe employees, U.S. military users including U.S. Air Force users, and users from Google, NASA, universities, and other companies.
