Evernote releases security update after service is hacked.

Evernote has released a security update after its services has been hacked on February 28. The hackers were able to access usernames, email addresses and encrypted passwords. The company, however, was prompt to reassure users that no contents were accessed. And it did not stop there.

All Evernote users will be forced to change their passwords. "While our password encryption measures are robust, we are taking additional steps to ensure that your personal data remains secure.", Evernote posted on its blog. Users accessing the service online, on computers and mobile devices will be required to change their passwords.

Evernote also published an update for Android devices that "addresses a security issue that requires you to reset your password." Of course, I strongly recommend you download this update.
