It looks like Adobe is finally contacting folks about their massive data
loss. Considering it was revealed on October 3, that makes over two months.
(Likely longer since Adobe did not know about it for months).

Fortunately, Adobe was following "best practices".... Oh wait, according to
Schneier and others, they were not [0,1].

How's that for corporate responsibility..... The executives at Adobe will
probably give themselves bonuses for a job well done.
