Adobe Store Security Breach

Reported by Seth Noble in July 2003 under the title "Adobe Store Security Breach": "A few months ago I purchased Adobe Acrobat from the Adobe online store. As usual, I created a custom email alias for the transaction and used a credit card with a low limit that I only use for Internet purchases. About a month ago the Adobe only email address started receiving spam of the worst "herbal viagra" or "get a better job" variety. Since the only time that email address has ever been used was in that one purchase from the Adobe store, I reported this as a security breach via "Report security vulnerabilities or incidents." I have not received any response from Adobe, but I have gotten more spam.Disabling the email address is easy enough for me, but I do wonder if whoever extracted it from my transaction also got my credit card number. I will be watching my statements closely and I won't be doing any more business with the Adobe store."
