Evernote Resets All Users Passwords

Evernote Resets Passwords After Attackers Steal Login Data
"Online personal organizer Evernote reset passwords for all its users after attackers breached the company's systems and accessed login credentials, the company said in an email to customers.
Evernote assured users that even though the passwords had been exposed, the damage was limited because the company had used "one-way encryption" (hashed and salted) to protect the data. This means that attackers would have a more difficult time cracking the information to steal the actual password."
