Evernote hacked: 50 million passwords reset

LONDON — The online note-taking service Evernote Corp. reported that it had been hacked and was resetting all of its approximately 50 million users’ passwords as a precaution.

The Redwood City, Calif., company said in a post published late Saturday that 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 said the attacker was able to access an unspecified number of customers’ encrypted passwords. Decoding such passwords can be difficult but is far from impossible.

The company said it had seen no evidence that any customer data had been tampered with or that any payment information had been compromised.

A phone message left with Evernote on Sunday was not immediately responded to.
