Alert: Evernote site hacked – passwords stolen

Over the past few days the Evernote web site was hacked and user data was taken. This data consisted of user names, encrypted passwords, email addresses. At this time they do not believe any customer data has been compromised. If you use the Evernote service you will need to reset your passwords online and on any iOS or Android devices that connect to the service. There are full reset instructions posted in your account on the service. Log into your account and follow the directions to reset your main account first then update your devices with the new information.

Also as a word of warning if you use the same password on other web sites they should be changed too. This is exactly why it is not a good security practice to use the same password on several sites. Always use a strong password that is a mix of upper and lower case letters with number and punctuation symbols included. Be sure to change your password as soon as possible and let any users that you know to do the same, the faster you change your information the less time the hackers have to use it.
