Adobe has suspended its forum whilst it works on restoring services and resetting user passwords.

The software developer has released a statement saying that it is investigating a password hack and stresses that the no other Adobe services have been affected.

“Adobe is currently investigating reports of a compromise of a forum database. These reports first started circulating late during the day on Tuesday, November 13, 2012. At this point of our investigation, it appears that the forum site was compromised by an unauthorised third party. It does not appear that any other Adobe services, including the Adobe Connect conferencing service itself, were impacted,” read the Adobe Connect Blog.

The company has not stated how many users have been affected by the hack.

Adobe Connect offers collaboration software used for online training and web conferencing.
