Why You Should Dump Dropbox

On Monday, October 13, 2014, several sites like Ars TechnicaVentureBeat, and The Verge reported that hackers claim to have stolen 7 million Dropbox passwords.

Dropbox said that they were not hacked and that the passwords were stolen from other sites and tried on Dropbox since many people use the same password for multiple sites. Posts on Reddit suggest that some of the published passwords have already been used to login to unsuspecting Dropbox accounts.

If you have important files on Dropbox, I recommend that you consider reviewing your data backup and data security policies and procedures. Drop me a line for some guidelines on how to protect your data with ShareSync.
