50 million passwords changed

|

Evernote joins Twitter, Apple, and Facebook on the list of tech companies hacked in recent weeks.

Evernote "has discovered and blocked suspicious activity on the Evernote network that appears to have been a coordinated attempt to access secure areas of the Evernote Service," according to a statement posted on the company's website earlier today. "As a precaution to protect your data, we have decided to implement a password reset."

About 50 million passwords have been changed following the breach.

The hackers accessed usernames, email addresses and encrypted passwords. The company is now requiring its users to update their passwords. To facilitate this, Evernote is releasing app updates.
