Adobe originally admitted loss of 38 million user credentials as well as some source code of their products. Later, it was revealed that the amount of usernames and passwords stolen was much higher (around 150 million). The publishing of the entire database now shows that although the passwords were encrypted they were not hashed making tham easily breachable using brute force and statistics.
