Was Your Dropbox Password Hacked?

 

On Monday, October 13, 2014, several sites like Ars Technica, VentureBeat, and The Verge reported that hackers claim to have stolen 7 million Dropbox passwords.

Dropbox said that they were not hacked and that the passwords were stolen from other sites and tried on Dropbox since many people use the same password for multiple sites. Posts on Reddit suggest that some of the published passwords have already been used to login to unsuspecting Dropbox accounts.

If you have important files on Dropbox, we recommend that you consider reviewing your data backup and data security policies and procedures. Contact us for some guidelines to protect your data.
