The Evernote team has come out today and told the public that it’s service has been breached by hackers. Evernote is the service that let’s you take notes or pictures or anything of that matter and save them all to the cloud to easily access on all of your devices. Over the course of it’s existence this service has gained 50 million users. Now according to the Evernote team all of those user’s email addresses, user names, and encrypted passwords were all accessed by hackers. But there is a silver lining to this cloud of despair, there is no evidence that any personal data or saved content was accessed. That means that user’s bank account information, saved notes and anything else they had on Evernote seems to be fine and untouched by the hackers.
All of the users who have an Evernote account will be prompted to change their password the next time they use the Evernote app. On top of that the Evernote team said that they are taking extra steps to make sure that this doesn’t happen again. This sort of situation seems to be becoming a growing problem with Twitter and Facebook also recently being hacked. But we have yet to see anything that really brings down an entire social media site and it can’t be too far off with everything that’s been going on in the hacking world. Just keep your passwords long and complicated and keep your login info to yourself to make sure your account stays yours.
