Evernote Was Hacked And Your (Encrypted) Passwords Got Stolen

By Eric Limer on at

If you go to log in to Evernote, you may find that you'll have to reset your password. Why? Well according to a post on the official Evernote blog, they were hacked, and while no personal information was snatched, emails, usernames, and passwords were. But luckily, those passwords were encrypted, but better safe than sorry.

From the blog post:

On February 28th, the Evernote Operations & Security team became aware of unusual and potentially malicious activity on the Evernote service that warranted a deeper look. We discovered that a person or persons had gained access to usernames, email addresses and encrypted user passwords. In our ongoing analysis, we have found no evidence that there has been unauthorized access to the contents of any user account or to any payment information of Evernote Premium and Evernote Business customers.
