Evernote’s official discussion forum has suffered a security breach, which has allowed hackers to access user’s profile information and (in some cases) password hashes.
On Monday, Evernote‘s popular forum users became victims of a hacker attack.
Hackers could get access to password hashes (this applies only to the users who created the passwords until 2011), names, birthday details and email addresses.
“We do not store your Evernote password on our discussion forum servers and you do not need to change it,” Evernote representatives said. However, if you used the same account password on another sites you would need to change it. Moreover, the discussion site is a separate service from the note-taking one and all other content is safe and sound.
Evernote is keen to underline that its main servers were not compromised by the hackers, and that it was only their discussion forum that suffered from the security breach.
This is not the first time when Evernote has been hacked. In March 2013, the company reset passwords of 50 million users after a breach and last week it also faced massive denial-of-service attack (DDoS).
