Would someone please advise what Adobe this is?  I just want to check if I have it on my system.  Thanks.

Adobe did not specify which of its products were compromised in the source-code theft, but Brian Krebs of the Krebs on Security blog, which reported the security breach several hours before Adobe officially acknowledged it, said the "ColdFusion Web application platform and possibly [the] Acrobat family of products" were among those affected.

Adobe is notifying customers and resetting passwords. It has alerted banks processing Adobe payments to help protect customer accounts. It is also working with federal law enforcement on its related investigation.

I have Adobe's Creative Cloud subscription.  Hoping that product wasn't one of them.  It is automatically billed each month.
