Possible Dropbox Security Breach

Possible Dropbox Security Breach

Dropbox users have been reporting getting spam sent to the email address that they use only for their Dropbox account. Dropbox is officially looking into the incident but has still not stated if they have officially had a data breach or not. This is not the first problem for Dropbox and being the most popular file storage service will not be the last.


A similar incident happened to Carbonite last year but it turned out not to be a data breach but rather a misguided marketing decision that allowed a marketing firm access to users email addresses. Dropbox has relied heavily on user referrals to help grow their business so it is doubtful that this was a stupid mistake on their marketing department. Unfortunately this also means that it appears that Dropbox does not know about a security breach, how it happened and how much information has actually been leaked.

Given this new problem with Dropbox will you continue using the service? There are other options available like SpiderOak and Sugarsync  that offer abundant free space.

When I hear more about this latest issue with Dropbox I will do my best to update you with the news.
