Yup the new is correct, Dropbox was hacked the other day, and your information is in danger. Normally I’d run around flailing my arms looking like Robbie the Robot from Lost in Space…but this has been going on for so long, that if you haven’t learned to change your password regularly, you almost DESERVE to lose your information.
Don’t get me wrong, even I’ve fallen prey to not updating information regularly…but if you’re using a Cloud option like Dropbox that’s high profile…you should expect that hack and change your password regularly. There’s a reason that admins make their co-workers change their passwords every 30/60/90 days…and everyone needs to follow suit.
So from my friends over at CNet, here’s instructions on how to change your password on DropBox. DropBox has TWO STEP AUTHENTICATION…both the folks at CNET and I suggest that you enable it. One more way to not lose information…please use it. 🙂
