Dropbox users are being advised to change their passwords


Earlier this year, reports first began to appear that a historic data breach at Dropbox may have exposed tens of millions of user passwords, after a file claiming to contain approximately 100 million Dropbox account details was made available for anyone to download.

Dropbox has confirmed to the media that a 5GB archive of files, containing the email addresses and hashed passwords for some 68,680,741 accounts, is genuine.
