Dropbox recently disclosed that a known 2012 cyberattack gave hackers access to 68 million users' account credentials.
Dropbox reset passwords to all affected accounts. Users should have received an email from Dropbox alerting them to this situation in recent days. We're letting you know in case you did not receive it.
Remember, cybersecurity requires that we remain vigilant on many fronts, and protect ourselves on many levels. We urge you to change your Dropbox password. In addition, change the passwords to other accounts for which you think you may have reused the same password.
Hackers were able to access data after discovering and using a Dropbox employee's password. This proves that password security is a key defense. At a minimum, it is important to regularly update your credentials with complex passwords and implement two-factor authentication.
Dropbox is not what we would consider a best-of-breed solution for sharing files.
