SHANGHAI, Jan 13 (Reuters) - Adobe Systems ADBE.O, a top maker of design software, said on Wednesday it had suffered a sophisticated and coordinated cyber attack and was carrying out investigations.
"Adobe became aware on January 2, 2010 of a computer security incident involving a sophisticated, coordinated attack against corporate network systems managed by Adobe and other companies," the firm said in a blogspot here
Adobe's announcement comes hours after U.S. search giant Google Inc GOOG.O said it may pull out of China because of censorship and cyber attacks on rights activists.
Google said the attacks took place in mid-December and affected 20 other big corporations. [ID:nN12211882]
