It was revealed today (31st Aug) that the popular cloud storage service, Dropbox has been hacked, with over 68 million users’ email addresses and passwords compromised.
Although the attack happened back in 2012, it wasn’t revealed at the time that passwords had also been leaked.
We’re aware that many of our clients use Dropbox regularly, so we would urge users to change their passwords and to enable Dropbox’s two-step verification, if it’s not already on.
Remember, make your passwords as secure as possible with a mixture of upper and lowercase letters, numbers and special characters. Don’t use passwords that are active for other online accounts or that could be easily guessed.
