Dropbox, the popular cloud storage service, today contacted users and announced on its blog that a few of its users’ accounts had been accessed via usernames and passwords stolen from other sites. In addition to helping the owners of the breached accounts secure their data, Dropbox has introduced some new features to increase security for all its users.
Dropbox is also strongly warning its customers to use a unique password on every website, not just one password across many. If one site is compromised, and your username/password combination falls into the wrong hands, it’s likely it can be used to access your accounts with other popular websites.
We here at Invision urge you to heed this advice. If you are interested in solutions for password management, don’t hesitate to contact us.
In the meantime, read today’s Dropbox blog for more details on the service’s new security features.
