Another Leaky Cloud – Dropbox gets Breached

It seems as though it’s been a double whammy for the cloud storage service, Dropbox, this week. After announcing a bug that caused peoples files to get deleted unintentionally they have been victim to a third-party breach. Hackers infiltrated a third-party service used for storing peoples Dropbox logins and made a database out of them. The hackers are taking Bitcoin donations to show more of the database.

Don’t worry, Dropbox has reset everyone’s passwords already, and most of the passwords were expired anyway. However, you should still change your password. This also goes to show the internet is a dangerous place and you should only use a typewriter. Also, buy tinfoil hats or the government will read your thoughts.
