Drop-box the popular online locker service, appears to have been hacked by an unnamed hacker group. It is still unclear how the account details of so many users were accessed and, indeed, if they are actually legitimate or not. However, the group claims to have accessed details from nearly 7 million individual accounts and are threatening to release users’ photos, videos and other files.
A thread surfaced on Reddit today that include links to files containing hundreds of usernames and passwords for Drop-box accounts in plain text. Also a series of posts with hundreds of alleged usernames and passwords for Drop-box accounts have been made to Pastebin, an anonymous information-sharing site.
