Memorial Libraries recently became aware of a software vulnerability that exists within Adobe Digital Editions 4.0-- the software that is used to access full text ebooks by most libraries around the world. Adobe Digital Editions has been logging data on the books used in this application, and other ebooks that have been downloaded on the devices of library users, as well as some personal user information such as IP addresses and user IDs. This information is uploaded to Adobe servers in plain text with no additional security measures taken such as encryption. Note, this vulnerability seems to be limited to Adobe Digital Editions 4.0.
While Adobe works to rectify this issue, we recommend that you uninstall Adobe Digital Editions 4.0 from all of your devices immediately if you have concerns about your privacy, and revert to Adobe Digital Editions 3.0.
Our ebooks can be accessed online. However, once you download a book to read offline, Adobe Digital Edition is required as it is a condition of purchase with much of the ebook content Memorial Libraries offers.
Memorial Libraries is coordinating with the Information Access and Privacy Protection Office to ensure our usersâ privacy is protected with adherence to the Universityâs outlined policies and procedures. We will keep you updated as more information becomes available.
Open Access (OA) is a global movement that aims to make scholarly content and research output more accessible by removing subscription and login barriers.

Adobe Digital Editions is the most commonly used desktop application for accessing e-books that contain Adobe’s digital rights management (DRM) software. The Adobe DRM is used by many booksellers and online library lending services such as EBL, ebrary, and EBSCO.
You do not need to download e-Books using Adobe Digital Editions to use them effectively; you can continue to read them online. You may receive a message that the time period for viewing an e-Book has elapsed, prompting you to create a loan. You can do so, as this does not invoke Adobe Digital Editions. One advantage to reading e-Books online is that any notes you make while reading will persist, and will be available to you at any time. Ask us how.
If you have an iOS or Android device, use a tablet-based reader app such as BluefireReader. These apps can unlock e-books protected with the Adobe DRM but do not communicate reading data to Adobe.
If you have concerns about the operation of the new Adobe Digital Editions, you may wish to:
- Uninstall the Adobe Digital Editions 4 Reader if you have downloaded this version of the software on your computer or device.
- Use older versions of Adobe Digital Editions, which do not communicate with Adobe except to validate the license to unlock the DRM protected book. Previous versions are available at: http://www.adobe.com/support/digitaleditions/downloads.html
If you have concerns please contact Tanja Harrison, University Librarian, at 902-457-6108 or email@example.com
