Evernote seems to have responded well to the breach with a universal password reset for its users. It should also take a page from Bit9 and eventually explain how the breach actually occurred--sharing lessons learned helps everyone.

re: Evernote Breach: 7 Security Lessons
Matthew, I think there's another important element to Lesson #5 that's worth considering...

As you stated, email addresses are nearly as valuable as account passwords, since they enable future attack opportunities, so why not apply the same level of protection to email addresses as for the passwords themselves? This one additional security measure could have rendered the stolen data far less valuable to the thieves!
