Someone is Trying to Hack into Dropbox With Stolen Passwords
Dropbox is another in a long line of websites that is under attack from hackers trying to gain access to user accounts, forcing users to play the game “Time To Reset Your Password!”
Hackers are using passwords from third party sites or services to try and log in to user’s Dropbox accounts. While the average user may not be in too much trouble, it’s still a good idea to change your password, remembering to not use one you use on other sites, and to enable two-step verification. This would a good strong password, should keep your files safe from whoever is trying to gain access.
Another thing to keep in mind too, is don’t put anything important, that you wouldn’t want to fall into the hands of the bad guys, on a cloud service. That is just asking for trouble. This is the same mantra that has been passed around after the Fappenings, and the Snappening.
No one knows where the hackers got the passwords they are trying, so it would also be a good idea to change them on other sites as well, and remember to enable two-step on those sites if it’s offered.
