AG Zoeller settles data breach case against software company


INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. –
Attorney General Greg Zoeller announced today Indiana is one of 16 states that reached a settlement with the software company Adobe Systems, Inc. after an investigation into a 2013 data breach of certain Adobe servers revealed approximately 24,049 Hoosiers were affected.

The hacker stole the personal information of approximately 2.9 million people nationwide, including names, addresses, telephone numbers, e-mail addresses, usernames, encrypted payment card numbers and expiration dates, as well as other data. Indiana’s share of the $1 million settlement is $53,718.36, which will be earmarked for consumer education and protection.

“This case is yet another example of the importance of protecting your personal and financial information,” Zoeller said. “I continue to be an advocate for Indiana’s credit freeze protections and encourage all Hoosiers to place credit freezes with the major credit bureaus.”

The states involved in the investigation of the unauthorized server access alleged that Adobe did not use reasonable security measures to protect its systems from an attack or have proper measures in place to immediately detect an attack. The agreement resolves consumer protection and privacy claims against the company and requires Adobe to implement new policies and practices to prevent future similar breaches

The states that participated in the investigation and joined Indiana in the agreement are Arkansas, Connecticut, Illinois, Kentucky, Maryland, Massachusetts, Missouri, Minnesota, Mississippi, North Carolina, Ohio, Oregon, Pennsylvania, and Vermont.
