You have probably heard by now that snapchat has been hacked and millions of photos have been leaked. Now it appears that hackers have gained access to 7 million dropbox accounts. This could potentially mean that your personal files are at risk. It was discovered by reddit users that dropbox accounts had been hacked. The reddit users are reporting that this encompasses 7 million useres. Dropbox is claiming that their servers have not been hacked and it is actually a third party service that is to blame. Many Android users use Dropbox to sync files between devices so many of you may be affected by this.
"Dropbox has not been hacked. These usernames and passwords were unfortunately stolen from other services and used in attempts to log in to Dropbox accounts. We’d previously detected these attacks and the vast majority of the passwords posted have been expired for some time now. All other remaining passwords have been expired as well."
Just to be safe you should go and change your password. It is always good habit to change your passwords on a regular basis anyhow.
