Evernote Hacked - change your password

They say this is why you should not use the same password for all your different accounts. If one service is hacked and email/passwords leaked, the emails and password combination is invariably used to try to access a number of other services.

To think various governments want third parties to store more information about us but again and again information kept by reputable companies is compromised.

Cloud note-taking service Evernote has been hacked and now you have to reset your password imminently. According to a post on the official Evernote blog, an unidentified attacker compromise the servers and extracted usernames, email addresses, and passwords.

"Evernote’s Operations & Security team has discovered and blocked suspicious activity on the Evernote network that appears to have been a coordinated attempt to access secure areas of the Evernote Service."

But those passwords were encrypted, so all users must change their password before they can log back into their account. "In our security investigation, we have found no evidence that any of the content you store in Evernote was accessed, changed or lost."


Evernote also said that they have no evidence that any payment information for Evernote Premium or Evernote Business customers was accessed.

There are also several important steps that you can take to ensure that your data on any site, including Evernote, is secure:

    Avoid using simple passwords based on dictionary words
    Never use the same password on multiple sites or services
    Never click on ‘reset password’ requests in emails instead go directly to the service

I'm always pleased I dont use any of these services that are simply waiting to be hacked, its a delusion in my eyes to pretend anythings safe stored online and the track record for such services seems to prove it.
