Information Security Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for Information security professionals. It's 100% free, no registration required.

Adobe announced they had been hacked and millions of user accounts and passwords compromised.

These sites allow a search on email address to see if it was compromised:
https://lastpass.com/adobe/
http://adobe.breach.il.ly/

This site contains the Top 100 passwords used:

http://stricture-group.com/files/adobe-top100.txt

Where are they getting this information from?

Where can I download a list of the emails so I can notify any of my site's users, with the same email, to change their password like Facebook have done?

This question appears to be off-topic because it is asking for a link to a particular resource from a particular incident. Links to this data will likely quickly be invalidated and not helpful to future users, so this is not a good fit for the StackExchange site format. –  Xander Nov 17 '13 at 22:41

I could not give you a direct link to the file, but you could search for a file called "users.tar.gz", which has a file size of about 3.8 GB. With the search engine of your choice you should be able to find the file within minutes.

Cheers. That's all I wanted to know. –  Turgs Nov 18 '13 at 0:26
