As expected but a little sooner than I would have thought and if true puts paid to the theories that CC was to protect Adobe from pirating http://fstoppers.com/adobe-photoshop-cc-has-already-been-pirated-in-just-one-day
Just to clear up any misunderstanding the Cloud storage was never intended to be a backup/storage facility. Adobe specifically state as much
Somehow I suspect that when the pirated software tries to do its monthly validation with the Cloud - it will fail and shut down.
Why? The previous pirated versions had no problem with Adobe's online validation. Since (aside from some functionality updates) the CC version is pretty much identical to the previous CS versions it is doubtful that the activation was that hard to circumvent. All the pirates had to do was update their hacked amtlib.dll (which is, since the Romans built Hadrians wall, where Adobe houses their activation code) and they're in business. Which, I guess, is exactly what happened.
