Dropbox hacked - get those passwords changed!
Dropbox are saying that it’s a ‘small number’ of accounts that have been hacked, but one of those was the account of an employee – among their files was a document listing users’ email addresses.
The emails were nicked and used for spam, which led to the discovery of the intial hackery. Still with us? Good.
Most of the people affected are from the UK, Germany and Holland, so it’s better to be safe than sorry and get that password changed before the baddies get a look at your goodies.
Dropbox have apologised and announced some new security measures in a classic example of shutting the stable horse once the door has bolted. Or something like that.
