7 million logins to dropbox hacked already a few thousand published (we have a list)

the list is from the portions that are published on pastebin

This is the accumulated list so far (6 postings) http://belsec.skynetblogs.be/hacked-dropbox-accounts-the-... they have already been downloaded more than 50.000 times so you can expect a lot of attacks against those addresses

the hackers are publishing portions of the database from time to time depending if someone gives them a bitcoin or not (this is the first time that the crimecommunity can finance a dataleakage)

"MORE BITCOIN = MORE ACCOUNTS PUBLISHED ON PASTEBIN

As more BTC is donated , More pastebin pastes will appear
To find them, simply search for "DROPBOX HACKED" and you
will see any additional pastes as they are published.
FIRST TEASER - [1] DROPBOX ACCOUNT Just to get things going...
SEND BTC DONATIONS TO [redacted]
COME BACK AND CHECK PASTEBIN FOR NEW DROPBOX DROPS
THE MORE BTC DONATED WILL REFLECT HOW MANY MORE LOGIN AND PASSWORDS
ARE RELEASED PUBLIC."
 
there are rumours that downloaded data from those dropboxes are being sold or distributed but this is just rumour
 
some other scriptkiddie is changing the passwords of the accounts that are published (using the password mentioned) but this will block the main user also out of the account
 
"I am running a script to ``unhack'' dropbox accounts.

I figure being locked out of your account is better than script kiddies snooping through your files.

Don't donate to the script kiddy's bitcoin address, as the passwords leaked will not be valid for long.

Dropbox says that third applications are responsable which is the same issue we had with snapchat. You are as secure as the connected services are ......

They also said that they are asking those users to change their password ? So 7 million users have to change their password all of a sudden ?
