DDoS Attack is the Reason Your Evernote Musings Have Been on the Blink

By Gerald Lynch on at

Cloud-syncing note service Evernote was hit by a DDoS attack late last night, preventing many of its 100 million users from accessing their files. Knocking the service out by sending massive amounts of traffic to Evernote's servers, it's not thought that the hackers were able to access any user data. Either way, it's always smart to update passwords after any attack, so get on to that now. Evernote now believes it's brought things back under control, but noted that some users may still experience a "hiccup here and there". Neither the perpetrators, nor their motives, have been revealed yet. [Evernote]
