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. Which, 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. Named “Adobe Photoshop CC 14.0 Final Multilanguage”, comments left by Pirate Bay users suggest it works just great.

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