Dropbox is the latest website to be hacked in a long list of popular websites to have users' passwords compromised. Unfortunately, some DropBox users had their accounts hacked into and email addresses used for SPAM. In this case the passwords were not posted online, so it is no easy to know if you account was compromised, but the hack was discovered when several users that only use a certain email address for DropBox started receiving SPAM emails. DropBox is urging all their users to change their password just to be sure.
