The maker of popular software such as Photoshop and Adobe Acrobat also said hackers had stolen the source codes -- or instructions for a computer program -- for some of its products.
The company said hackers are believed to have taken information relating to 2.9 million Adobe customers, including customer names, encrypted credit- or debit-card numbers, expiration dates, and other information relating to people's business with the company.
Adobe said it was resetting the passwords of customers whose information was taken and alerting people whose card numbers were taken.
The company said it was working with law enforcement in response to the thefts.
