Over a month ago, The Hacker News reported about the Dropbox Hack, where hackers had managed to steal more than 68 Million Dropbox accounts in a data breach that was initially disclosed by the online cloud storage platform in 2012.
Although the initial announcement failed to reveal the true scale of the data breach, it was in late August when the breach notification service LeakBase obtained files containing details on over 68 million accounts, which contains email addresses and hashed passwords for Dropbox users.
Last month, a hacker was selling this Dropbox data dump on a Dark Web marketplace known as TheRealDeal for around $1200.

Thomas White, known online as The Cthulhu, uploaded Monday the full Dropbox data dump onto his website in a move, as he claims, to help security researchers examine the data breach.
So, anyone can now download the leaked database of 68,680,741 Dropbox accounts, containing email addresses and hashed passwords, totally for FREE.
There are 36,814,524 passwords that are encrypted with Secure Hash Algorithm 1 (SHA-1), 36,814,524 passwords are Brute force salt while 31,865,280 are encrypted with Blowfish encryption algorithm.Remember, Blowfish is vulnerable to birthday attack
This is not the first time when such a massive amount of data went up for sale days after it was leaked. In fact, 2016 has been a bad year for tech and social media giants.
