No News Is Good News? Dropbox Says No Intrusions Found, Investigation Continues
Dropbox says it hasn't found intrusions into its internal systems or any cases of unauthorized activity in user accounts. Earlier this week, the company appeared to be suffering from what looked like a security breach. Users, mainly those based in Europe, were being sent unsolicited spam emails related to European casino scams. It was unclear how they had been targeted, since many users claimed their email was a unique and private address they were only using on Dropbox itself. The situation seemed to be serious, as Dropbox announced on Wednesday it had hired outside experts to aid in the investigation.
