Leaked Dropbox Password

Taken from SINGCERT

Online reports have revealed that some Dropbox accounts have been compromised. According to Dropbox’s media statement, the usernames and passwords were stolen from other services and they have since reset the "small number" of affected accounts.

  • Change your Dropbox passwords as soon as possible. If other accounts share the same password as your Dropbox account, it's recommended to change the passwords of those accounts as well.
  • Enable 2-factor authentication (2FA) for your Dropbox account. For more information on enabling 2FA in Dropbox, please refer to
  • Be selective of using your Dropbox account to sign in to third party services.
