I am not a security expert and I do not speak for Adobe in this case. However, I would contact my bank and ask them what they recommend. I would also be very, very cautious about any emails or phone calls purporting to be from Adobe that try to get you to provide PID, passwords, or financial information or payments.

 

Note that the article itself says:

--QUOTE by ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The information does not pose a direct financial or security threat. No credit cards or other payment information was exposed, nor were any passwords.

Hi, Adobe wrote about this here:

 

https://theblog.adobe.com/security-update/

 

It looks like a security researcher discovered a brief (est. 7 days) vulnerability in an Adobe prototype development environment by proactively running extensive online scans/probes, not necessarily that the data was found, copied or stolen by any malicious hacker. So at this time, anyway, there does not appear to be abuse of that data confirmed.

 

Regardless, always be aware of possible phishing emails from any company, regardless of source/sender... There are plenty of big email list exposures out there which have been positively confirmed to have been widely stolen and abused, sold, etc.
