If you have an Adobe account, and you have passwords that match your Adobe password, you may need to change your password on those other accounts; it likely was exposed to ALL on the World Wide Web, IN THE OPEN: your password. THIS was why Yahoo locked me out, not "Anonymous." (Sorry, "Guy.") FB didn't contact me, oddly, even though I was on the Adobe list. I changed it anyway. And all my other clouds and key accounts.
You may want to check this out. If you get a similar message regarding "unusual activity" or anything of the kind, it is referring to Adobe being hacked, and passwords (and "hints") being published openly on the web. This doesn't mean you have been hacked anywhere else, but it is dangerous, depending on what data you keep in such accounts. This applies to ANY web account, any at all, that has your Adobe pass. (You may want to change that, too!)
Again: This information, this warning applies to ALL and ANY accounts that share your Adobe password. Act immediately, as I did. If you have an accounts also with your Adobe pass, it WAS PUBLISHED OPENLY ON THE WORLD WIDE WEB. Change it. It will compromise your data.
This is the story about the name-checked ("Adobe") email I got from Evernote, who laid any blame at Adobe's doorstep. Deservedly so, with their "Creative Cloud" business.
This information, this warning applies to ALL and ANY accounts that share your Adobe password. Act immediately, as I did. If you have an accounts also with your Adobe pass, it WAS PUBLISHED OPENLY ON THE WORLD WIDE WEB. Change it. It will compromise your data.

Evernote is warning thousands of its users to change their passwords immediately.
The warning follows a huge attack on Adobe, in which hackers grabbed passwords from up to 150 million Adobe customers and posted them to the Web.
Evernote is worried its users may have created the same passwords for both Adobe and Evernote.
Evernote isn't the first to warn its users to change their passwords because of the massive hack on Adobe. Facebook did the same thing.
But Evernote's email is unusual because it clearly (and repeatedly) calls Adobe out by name:
Here's the email Evernote sent:
Evernote Adobe email
Email sent by Evernote
Last week, Facebook sent a similar message. It found the people that were using stolen passwords, then blocked their accounts until they changed their passwords.
But Facebook's message didn't call Adobe on the carpet by name. This is what it said:
facebook password adobe message
Facebook / Krebs On Security
It's sort of refreshing to see Evernote not beat around the bush about it.
We imagine Adobe is not pleased.
