A cyber-attack on software company Adobe has compromised 38 million accounts.

The company, famous for its Photoshop image manipulation software, has said it believes around 38 million of its active users had their usernames and passwords stolen in the attack.

It added that the hackers had also accessed details from unspecified dormant accounts.

The number of affected accounts is worse than first thought: the company initially said only 2.9 million accounts were affected.
