Thanks Phil. Unfortunately, I fell for the original email
yesterday and opened Dropbox with my info. So, don't
open anything from me!

dangerous
 


Hi all,
It appears that one or two people at least have had
their emails hacked, there are messages on MBB about Dropbox
which have links to sites in Spain. This is obviously some
sort of spam/malware/fishing emails, so DO NOT CLICK ON THE
LINK.

I got the original email from "Mary Crouser' via mbbirds" <mbbirds...> saying please open the link here for the dropbox attachment, link not disclosed cause it wasn't right.. don't click on this link.. It's just proof of the phishing URL.. http://dmces.com.br/site/js/vendor/calendar/investment/tax/dpb/ Mary confirmed that the email was a hack/scam.. we can look up the dmces.com.br host and report them but if Mary's account got hacked and the hackers are abusing it, it could be a legitimate service being compramized.. Dropbox is a tool for a purpose, much like MBB is.. Find the source of the problem and report them to their service provider.. I did a tracerout to dmces.com.br and got IP address 108.167.168.63, Ipwhois search says "WEBSITEWELCOME.COM" located at 5005 suite 100 mitchelldale houston texax. Ipwhois reports their contacts phone number and email address but no link to their abuse department.. +1-866-964-2867 (Office)
Email <ipadmin...>

Dropbox is kinda like imageshack or tinyurl.. it's untrusted.. something's going on on the intarweb to create a scare of untrusted hosts.. comes down to trust but verify..
