IMPORTANT Message from Children's Place

I received this email from The Children's Place today.  I copied it from my email.

Dear Customer,
Yesterday we became aware that our customer email address database, which is stored at the Company's third party email service provider, was accessed without authorization. Following this access an unauthorized email was sent, which appears to have come from Adobe, directing customers to a website where they are asked to enter their credit card number in order to update software. This email did not come from The Children's Place and does not resemble the emails you normally receive from us.
Our third party email service provider has informed us that only email addresses were accessed and no other personal information was obtained.
As a reminder, please always be alert to any suspicious emails, especially those that request personal information such as credit card numbers. The Children's Place would not ask you, in an email, to update any software or for other highly sensitive personal information.
We are continuing to investigate this incident and apologize for any inconvenience. We take your privacy seriously and are taking steps to prevent this from occurring in the future. If you have any questions regarding this issue, please contact us toll-free at 1-877-752-2387.
Sincerely,
The Children's
