Evernote Hacked: 50 Million Passwords Need Resetting

images (17)Evernote Corp., a cloud-cased collection of apps that try to simplify the way users stay organized and productive, has revealed that they have been hacked and are in the process of resetting all of is 50 million users’ passwords as a precaution.

The online note-taking company, which is based in Redwood City, California, said in a post published yesterday that a hacker has been able to access sensitive customer information and that every user would have their account reset “in an abundance of caution.”

The company explained that it hasn’t seen any evidence that customer data had been meddled with or that any payment information had been compromised.

Evernote spokeswoman Ronda Scott told Reuters on Saturday that the attack “follows a similar pattern” to other cyber attacks on Internet-based companies in recent weeks, but she did not elaborate. In addition, according to Reuters - Scott declined to say how many accounts had been exposed or whether it might be possible for the hackers to unscramble encrypted passwords.

The Evernote team blogged:

“As a precaution to protect your data, we have decided to implement a password reset. … Even though this information was accessed, the passwords stored by Evernote…are hashed and salted. … [But] in an abundance of caution, we are requiring all users to reset their Evernote account passwords.

As recent events with other large services have demonstrated, this type of activity is becoming more common. … We apologize for the annoyance of having to change your password. “
