Hundreds of Dropbox accounts compromised via third party service; change your password now
Earlier today, a thread surfaced on Reddit offering up 400 Dropbox usernames and passwords in plain text, with a note that over seven million accounts have been compromised in total. Dropbox has since announced on its blog that it wasn't hacked, and that the leaked passwords were stolen from a third party service.
The leak that was posted on Reddit contained hundreds of accounts with email addresses beginning with the letter "b". Dropbox is sending out password reset instructions to affected users, but as a precaution, it is advised that all users change their passwords on the service. While you're at it, go ahead and enable two-factor authentication as an added layer of security.
If today's news seems eerily familiar, it is because Snapchat suffered a similar hack earlier this month.
Were you one of the users affected by the hack? Let us know if you were able to successfully change your password.
