ONLINE note-taking firm Evernote Corp says it has been hacked and is resetting all its 50 million users' passwords as a precaution.
The firm said late Saturday an attacker had been able to access sensitive customer information and that every user would have their account reset "in an abundance of caution."
Evernote says the attacker was able to access an unspecified number of customers' encrypted passwords. Decoding such passwords can be difficult but is far from impossible.
Evernote says it has seen no evidence any customer data had been tampered with or that any payment data had been compromised.
