Fair to say it's not a best practice to retain CC data any longer than necessary?

This is exactly why we have a huge amount of regulations on the books. We basically have to force people/companies to do the right thing. Sad, really.

re: Adobe Customer Security Compromised: 7 Facts
I wonder why Adobe even held on to CC information. Throw it away once the transaction is done. Yes, the customer needs to key it in again the next time, but I rather type a few dozen characters than have my info stolen.
Do we really need to lobby lawmakers every single time to craft a law that enforces common sense?

Scary that Adobe didn't spot this. And one more reason why never to reuse passwords .

"But two different customers who received that email notification -- sent late Thursday, Pacific Time -- separately told InformationWeek that they'd initially dismissed the "important customer security alert" as spam."

The phishers are winning.

re: Adobe Customer Security Compromised: 7 Facts
Would the customer credit cards of past customers be at risk, or just people with some ongoing relationship like the newer subscription software options? I purchased a perpetual license to Creative Suite, but that was a couple of years ago, so I'd hope my credit card wouldn't still be stored anywhere.
