SEATTLE -- In today's networked world, a disgruntled employee can pose a greater corporate risk than an outside hacker.

That's one big lesson drawn from the indictment of Matthew Keys, 26 of Secaucus, the Reuters web editor,  N.J which has been charged with one count each of transmitting information to damage a protected computer, attempted transmission and conspiracy. He was let go from Sacramento television station KTXL Fox40 in October 2010. A few weeks later, he is alleged to have provided members of the hacker group Anonymous with log-in credentials to a computer server at the station's parent company. The hackers then defaced at least one of the station's news stories posted on a website.

Evernote is requiring its nearly 50 million users to reset their passwords after the popular personal note-taking app became the latest high-profile victim of wide-scale hacking attempts. The breach follows malicious activity at TwitterFacebookand others in recent weeks.

Phil Libin, Evernote’s CEO and founder, told TechCrunch in an email everything is running, although if you try to access the site things may not work as normal at the moment.

On February 28th, the Evernote Operations & Security team became aware of unusual and potentially malicious activity on the Evernote service that warranted a deeper look. They discovered that a person or persons had gained access to usernames, email addresses and encrypted user passwords. In their ongoing analysis, they have found no evidence that there has been unauthorized access to the contents of any user account or to any payment information of Evernote Premium and Evernote Business customers.
