Dropbox recently confirmed that they were breached in 2012, and disclosed that it was bigger than they had originally thought. There were about 5GB worth of files containing details of over 68 million accounts. The leaked information included email addresses and hashed passwords for Dropbox users, and “the data is legitimate,” according to a senior Dropbox employee.
Dropbox has forced password resets as a precautionary measure for all potentially impacted users.

Cyberthieves were able to steal 12 million Baht, approximately $350,000, at ATM machines in Thailand with a new malware called RIPPER. It shares traits to other similar malware, but RIPPER is unique in that it interacts with the ATM by inserting a special ATM card that has an EMV chip that serves as an authentication mechanism. It disables the ATM from local networks, wipes away forensic evidence, and dispenses about 40,000 Baht per withdrawal.
