Evernote, a cloud-based note-taking app, is the latest company to fall victim to hackers, and as a result, it asked its 50 million users to reset their passwords.
In a blog post sent out this weekend, Evernote said hackers were able to gain access to users' email addresses, their user names and encrypted passwords. Fortunately for users, hackers were not able to access any of their files or their payment information, the company said.
"While our password encryption measures are robust, we are taking additional steps to ensure that your personal data remains secure. This means that, in an abundance of caution, we are requiring all users to reset their Evernote account passwords," Evernote said in its blog.
Evernote is the latest in a long list of tech companies that have been hacked this year. Apple, Facebook, Twitter and Microsoft are the most notable companies to have been hacked in 2013.
