Dropbox Denies It Was Recently Hacked

On Tuesday, Anton Mityagin of Dropbox updated the company blog with news that the cloud storage service has not been hacked despite recent reports. News of the supposed hack originated on Reddit where an anonymous individual claimed to have stolen credentials from 7 million accounts. This information is contained in four Pastebin files.

“Your stuff is safe,” Mityagin wrote. “The usernames and passwords referenced in these articles were stolen from unrelated services, not Dropbox. Attackers then used these stolen credentials to try to log in to sites across the internet, including Dropbox. We have measures in place to detect suspicious login activity and we automatically reset passwords when it happens.”
