    Adobe's servers hacked.

    There was a hack at Adobe from an Egyptian hacker.

    According to the New York Times, Hima had specifically chosen Adobe in his attack to highlight their “slow response time.”
    While Hima claims to have obtained quite a bit of personal information from thousands of Adobe clients and employees, the New York Times notes that some of this information may be old. For instance, they found the record of a man who is listed as a product manager for Adobe. After performing a quick LinkedIn search, they discovered the same man left Adobe to work for Google in 2010.

    Though Adobe is acting quickly to restore their services, this may not be the last time we hear from Hima. The hacker is already promising a “hot leak” of Yahoo’s data in the near future, noting that companies should be more like Google when it comes to their security protocols.
    So this Hima person is just bored?

    In Japanese "hima" even means "free time" or "having time on your hands". Hmmm
