A post that appeared in Reddit contains links to hundreds of user names and account passwords dropbox in plain text.
The publication contains four Pastebin files containing several hundred user names and passwords per pairs in plain text. The anonymous uploader reports that he is part of a big leak and has requested donations to Bitcoin to continue the publications.
His message states:
Here is another batch of Dröpbox Hacked Accounts from a Total 7.000.000 Account Hack
To see more accounts, just look for Dropbox hack.
More come, as long as you show your support
Reddit users have reportedly confirmed that online credentials are real, but it is not clear where they come from.
Dropbox, however, with a statement on The Next Web, reports that passwords and user names leaked have been stolen from other third-party services:
Dropbox has not been hacked. These usernames and passwords are unfortunately stolen from other services that have been used to link to Dropbox accounts. We had detected these attacks (for months now) and the vast majority of passwords that have been published have expired for some time now. All other passwords have expired, too.
Dropbox, as an additional measure of prevention, forces existing users registered in Pastebin files to reset their passwords according to Reddit users.
However, if you use the service, change your password immediately.
