Dropbox: No Breach Found Following Spam Reports

(Ping! Zine Web Tech Magazine) – Despite users of popular cloud service Dropbox increasingly receiving spam messages, the site recently announced that an investigation hadn’t garnered any evidence of a security breach so far.

The comments were made by the provider via the company’s forums where many users had been complaining of receiving spam messages from something called“EU Dice” and “Euro Dice.”

Initially announcing the investigation last week, Dropbox indicated that it had brought in “outside experts” to help with the issue. “As of today, we’ve found no intrusions into our internal systems and no unauthorized activity in Dropbox accounts,” commented Dropbox forum member Graham A.

In addition to the initial finding, Graham emphasized that looking into the matter could take longer and that security was the company’s top priority.

Dropbox is notable for being a free cloud hosting platform, allowing users to sync data across desktops, laptops and mobile devices. The cloud provider recently acquired San Francisco-based company TapEngage, according to a report from Tech Crunch.
