security alert 0 Posted March 3, 2013 Share Posted March 3, 2013 I received a highly suspicious Phising email this morning. It claimed passwords needed to be reset. DO NOT CLICK ANY LINKS IN THAT EMAIL! (If you fully read the email, you'll note that it was a direct copy from an existing Evernote email, where they specifically warn you to NEVER CLICK A LINK IN AN EMAIL. The attacker had then modified the email to insert links well above the warning that they didn't even read.) If you hover over a link you'll notice it redirects to a non-evernote web site. It then asks you to ENTER YOUR CURRENT PASSWORD. If you have entered your password, you should consider yourself compromised. Had this been a serious alert from Evernote, you would have been instructed to visit Evernote from your Bookmarks, or enter it directly. At that point you should have seen a link to reset your password via email. Remember people, NEVER BLINDLY TRUST AN EMAIL. They are easily forged and companies already have established policies to verify your identity through established email accounts. You may wish to reset your password immediately, especially if you have clicked a link in the aforementioned email. Link to comment
