Dropbox Denies Being Hacked

Says the account info was stolen from third party services


Hundreds of alleged Dropbox usernames and passwords were posted online this week, but Dropbox says its systems were not hacked.

On Monday, a Reddit thread surfaced, containing links to files with hundreds of Dropbox account details, showcasing usernames and passwords in plain text.

A post on Pastebin said hackers got their hands on 7 million Dropbox accounts. To start, it posted data about 400 accounts, and said it would release more if people donated bitcoin.
