68 million Dropbox credentials leak online

From IT Pro

"More than 68 million Dropbox customers' usernames and passwords have been leaked after a four year-old hack, it has emerged.

The stolen credentials date back to mid-2012 and Dropbox acknowledged last week that it was forcing some customers to reset their passwords if they have not changed it since that period.

However, breach notification service Leakbase told Motherboard it has obtained four 5GB files filled with 68,680,741 Dropbox users' credentials.

Dropbox confirmed to IT Pro that more than 60 million accounts have been affected – around two-thirds of the company's user base back in 2012.”
