Hackers hold 7 million Dropbox passwords ransom - CNET

Hackers are threatening a major breach in Dropbox security, claiming to have stolen the login details of almost 7 million users, and promising to release more password details if they're paid a Bitcoin ransom.

However, Dropbox has denied it has been hacked, saying the passwords were stolen from third-party services.

An entry on Pastebin, posted on October 13 at 4:10 p.m. CDT, shows a list of 400 emails and matching plain text passwords, claimed to be part of a large-scale Dropbox hack.

The login details for the 400 email addresses, each one starting with the letter B, have been labelled as a "first teaser...just to get things going". The perpetrators are also promising to release more details if they're paid for the information.
