The official discussion forum of Evernote was hacked earlier this week, Geoff Barry, community manager at Evernote said in a blog post

Evernote forum hacked, Members profile information compromised

Just few days back the Popular note making and archiving service was brought down by hackers for several hours using DDOS attack.

Geoff Barry said that The hackers were able to retrieve forum members’ profile information. however password hashes of the accounts created in 2011 or earlier may be accessed. If you use that same password on other services today, please update it, he said.

The Company is sending email notifications to all the effected users.

However it is still not clear why the hackers attacked the forum just few days after the DDOS incident. was this the case of Ransom!
