7 Million Dropbox Accounts Hacked

Last month iCloud was hacked and now another popular cloud storage provider has been targeted. 7 million (6 937 081 to be exact), Dropbox account details have been stolen. The hackers have posted batches of the stolen data on Pastebin.com and forum users say they have tested some of the usernames and passwords and they actually worked.

The hackers are looking for Bitcoin “donations”

“Here is another batch of Hacked Dropbox accounts from the massive hack of 7,000,000 accounts
To see plenty more, just search on [redacted] for the term Dropbox hack.

More to come, keep showing your support“

Dropbox said in a statement to The Next Web that their servers have not been hacked, the information was apparently stolen from other services:

“Dropbox has not been hacked. These usernames and passwords were unfortunately stolen from other services and used in attempts to log in to Dropbox accounts. We’d previously detected these attacks and the vast majority of the passwords posted have been expired for some time now. All other remaining passwords have been expired as well.”
