[Dropbox] 7 million "username-password-pairs" leaked!
« on: October 14, 2014, 08:03:43 »
Hi everybody,

I know that Dropbox is quite popular in the Locus community. It seems that some skilled guys got access to Dropboxes and published the login datas:

So this is just a friendly reminder to change your passwords. ;)
Eventually set up two-step verification:

This is also available for your Google Account:

No need to get paranoid   8)

Have a nice day everybody,
berkley

Again? It's not so far away history since something similar happen, few months max.

Hmm ... then trust "Cloud storage". You maybe do not lost your data because of HDD failure, but ... :)

Seems legit!  ;)

I don't care about my credentials being leaked.
I care about nobody has access to my data!
