The link in the fake email goes to fake Adobe website that asks the visitors to sign-in with their email account credentials. But, any attempts to sign-in will result in the visitors' email account credentials being sent to the cybercriminals behind the scam.
Online users who have already been tricked are asked to change their email account password immediately before their accounts hijacked. For those whose accounts have already been hijacked, are asked to use their email providers' "Forget Password" option to regain access to their accounts.
