Evernote a fost «sparta». Notificarea companiei mi se pare genial formulata!

Printr-o notificare de resetare de parola, Evernote, o aplicatie de mobile cu ajutorul careia iti poti nota ganduri, pastra fotografii, crea liste to-do, inregistra remindere cu voce si le poti accesa de pe toate dispozitivele mobile pe care le detii, si-a anuntat utilizatorii asupra faptului ca au descoperit si blocat incercari de a accesa zone securizate ale serviciului.

Anuntul vine la o saptamana de la lansarea serviciului Evernote Business in Romania, insa si dupa o perioada nu prea buna pentru Twitter, de exemplu.

Stirea nu valoreaza doi bani pana la urma. I se poate intampla oricui, solutia a fost deja implementata, consumatorul a fost instiintat, viata merge inainte. Am vrut insa sa va semnalez formularea pe care au avut-o cei de la Evernote pentru a anunta, de fapt, un dezastru (accesul la intreaga baza de date de utilizatori), intr-o maniera linistitor de faina, cu tot cu solutia implementata.

Iti povesteste despre faptul ca au descoperit si blocat activitati anormale, ca au resetat parolele, ca nu au gasit nicio evidenta cum ca datele TALE au fost accesate, insa, ca fapt, hackerii au avut linistiti acces la date precum username, email si parole (criptate, deci fara prea mare pericol in acest moment). De aici e doar un pas pana la spam/phishing, doar un exemplu, in numele companiei.

Superb! 🙂

Evernote’s Operations & Security team has discovered and blocked suspicious activity on the Evernote network that appears to have been a coordinated attempt to access secure areas of the Evernote Service.

As a precaution to protect your data, we have decided to implement a password reset. Please read below for details and instructions.

In our security investigation, we have found no evidence that any of the content you store in Evernote was accessed, changed or lost. We also have no evidence that any payment information for Evernote Premium or Evernote Business customers was accessed.

The investigation has shown, however, that the individual(s) responsible were able to gain access to Evernote user information, which includes usernames, email addresses associated with Evernote accounts, and encrypted passwords. Even though this information was accessed, the passwords stored by Evernote are protected by one-way encryption. (In technical terms, they are hashed and salted.)

While our password encryption measures are robust, we are taking steps to ensure your personal data remains secure. This means that in an abundance of caution, we are requiring all users to reset their Evernote account passwords. Please create a new password by signing into your account on evernote.com.
