Spike in Dropbox spam raises security worries
European Dropbox users have reported a sudden spike in spam received by email addresses associated with their accounts, raising fears that the service has suffered a security compromise.
On 17 July, users in Germany, The Netherlands and the UK started complaining on the Dropbox user forum that they were receiving emails from a number of Russian-registered domains including 'Euro Dice Exchange' pushing casino spam. There has been no confirmation that the issue relates to Dropbox's security but the company said it was looking into the issue in a statement issued to a third-party news site.
