Adobe’s Creative Cloud Has Already Been Pirated

Adobe’s shift to cloud-based software provision for its new Creative Cloud design suite was partly motivated by anti-piracy concerns. This, of course, means… it’s already been pirated.

Just one day after the official roll out of Creative Cloud, a certain Ching Liu has already uploaded a torrent link to The Pirate Bay, which provides a cracked version of the software. And comments left by users suggest it works just great.

It remains to be seen if it will work in the long term — the new desktop apps have to connect to Adobe’s servers every month to re-validate their subscription status — but clearly Liu has gotten around the connectivity issues required for install. And Adobe clerly needs to up its anti-piracy game. [FStoppers via Peta Pixel]
