Is the Adobe Hack Just the Tip of the Iceberg? – ABC News.

Good example in this article about HOW BAD this hack was in terms of source code loss

Previously Hackers used Adobe Flash to penetrate RSA security. To steal source code to the RSA secure ID tokens to hack into Lockheed Martin to steal stuff

The Adobe Flash flaw was a O day exploit. However if hackers have the source code for mainstream programs they could subvert the updating routines and infect all copies of Adobe in a mega zero day

Or they could keep it to themselves

As the blog says “obviously, look twice at any email purportedly from Adobe encouraging you to download updates or new versions of the software.”
