Alleged Dropbox hack is a hoax
Washington: The alleged attack against popular backup service Dropbox by a hacker group appears to be a hoax.
A known " Anonymous" Twitter account tweeted that they hacked the website in the honor of fallen Internet activist, Aaron Swartz.
According to a website, Dropbox representatives sent an email indicating that Dropbox`s outage happened as a byproduct of `internal maintenance`.
The site was not hacked, and user data that was posted to Pastebin as supposed proof of the hack has a timestamp of December 9, the report said.
The outage brought down Dropbox`s cloud service via both the Web and the company`s desktop client.
