Evernote Resets All of Its Users’ Passwords

 

I found this interesting article in REALTOR Mag about Evernote and wanted to share this as I have many friends that use this service.

DAILY REAL ESTATE NEWS | TUESDAY, MARCH 05, 2013

A popular online note-taking service that many real estate professionals use recently faced a security breach that forced it to reset all 50 million of its users’ passwords.

The company says they reset the passwords as a precautionary measure, and that there is no indication that any of the content users have stored in their Evernote accounts was accessed or lost.

The company said that in investigating malicious activity in the program they found that scammers were able to obtain access to Evernote user information, which included usernames, e-mail addresses, and encrypted passwords.
