Do you use Dropbox? And what are you storing there?
Journalists at Motherboard reported that they obtained documents which show that more than 68 million users were affected by the data breach at Dropbox—one of the world’s largest file-hosting companies.
The information contained in the documents has since been identified as authentic by officials at Dropbox, though the company wanted to reiterate that this information didn’t refer to a new data breach. Rather, the documents detailing usernames and passwords stemmed from a 2012 data breach, an incident which had already been known.
So, while this isn’t a new breach, and while those affected by the breach in 2012 had already been told to change their passwords, those who reused the same email and password combination at other sites might now be vulnerable.
Will you change your password now?
