Adobe's Creative Cloud down; Says working to restore suite
The maker of Photoshop and Acrobat software said in a blog post that it had identified the cause of the disruption, but did not specify what caused the outage, or how soon it expects its services to be back to normal.
Adobe spokeswoman Vanessa Rios declined to elaborate about the outage.
Last year, hackers caused a data breach that resulted in the theft of millions of customer email addresses and passwords as well as the source code to some of Adobe's top-selling products. But Rios declined to comment when asked if the service disruption might be connected.
As of Thursday, users around the world were not able to access the Creative Cloud website, the desktop app or make purchases or upgrades.
Adobe had 1.84 million paid Creative Cloud subscriptions as of February. Adobe has been shifting to web-based subscription service Creative Cloud from a licensing model since 2012.
