We had our business Dropbox account hacked last night.

Still trying to figure out if files were just deleted or if data was stolen and how it happened.

The staff dropbox account they hacked in from had their laptop checked and there's no sign of virii/malware.

How likely is it that dropbox could be hacked at the server end? (Russia? Wikileaks!)

In uncharted waters atm...

Has said staff member sworn on a Bible/Quoran/copy of Dianetics that they never logged in from another computer, phone, or tablet? Was the Drop Box password sufficiently complex to deter a brute force attack? Has no other person had access to the laptop? Do you have two-factor identification turned on for Drop Box? (I'm not sure if business accounts allow that.)

I haven't done an evaluation of Dropbox but you can look at their CAIQ self-assessment here:

https://cloudsecurityalliance.org/star-registrant/dropbox-inc/

Under "STAR Self-Assessment" you can download the full spreadsheet with extremely detailed data cross-referenced to pretty much every certification control you can imagine.

(Disclaimer, I am not the dropbox admin - we have a "separation of powers")

Well, looking through the logs it seems two staff accounts, not one as first thought, were hacked at virtually the same time.

Tracing the IPs gets what I assume is an internet kiosk in the Brisbane CBD and a wifi hotspot (I assume w/o password) right near a train station. A local job and most likely identity theft.

And for all dropbox's fandangled security, when you login from a new, never previously used IP address, dropbox doesn't even do a "it looks like you're logging in from a new device/location, is this you?" which even FB bloody does.

Until yesterday I didn't even know about the two-step verification. Reporting this to the relevant local authorities gets a "meh, fill out a report"

Grrr!

Off to do a performance appraisal today for an extremely hostile staff member + their union rep.

Bad news from major client today, two of our major projects are cancelled and from another 75 day payment terms. Serious impact to our business and may have to lay off a majority of our staff.

I am mostly retired from Filemaker work. My former largest client does specialty travel. Russia; Iran. Oops, now processing massive loss of biz and reservations. AFAIK they are surviving so far. But.....

If you want to be a millionaire, it's better to be a software engineer than a pro athlete


And once you're out in the workforce, the average career span is 40 years with an average annual salary at $125,418. The lifetime earnings potential adds up to $5,016,723, better than both the typical pro NFL player and typical pro MLB athlete.

Better still to have a rich Daddy. Choose your parents carefully and you, too, can be an orange president.

I love meetings where everybody brings their own proposal, the merits of each are discussed, one proposal is chosen for implementation, and then everybody goes back to their desk and implements their part of their own proposal.

Doing exactly that with a logo redesign at the moment. My goodness my colleagues have absolutely no taste...
