Filed as News with 1 comment

Dropbox LogoRemember when Dropbox was breached over the summer and users received spam to their Dropbox email addresses? On Thursday another breach apparently sent even more spam to many of those same addresses.

The user emails are used specifically for the cloud storage service and the breach is rumored to have begun two day ago.

Several Dropbox users say the spam they are receiving appears to be coming from fake PayPal email addresses.

While it appears that the addresses could have been obtained by Dropbox itself, the company has not confirmed the type of breach experienced. Concerns are being raised over the potential breach of customer passwords and user files.
