7 million Dropbox account details stolen

Popular file sharing and cloud storage service Dropbox has reportedly been hacked. 7 million account details are thought to have been stolen by the hackers..

If you use Dropbox, it’s worth logging on and changing your password. Also ensure that any other online services you use doesn’t have the same password set. If so, you should change that too.

Once you’ve set your new Dropbox password you should enable two factor authentication on your account. This will help prevent data loss should further attacks occur. Check out this link on how to do that https://www.dropbox.com/en/help/363
