7 million Dropbox username/password pairs apparently leaked

(Ars): http://arstechnica.com/security/2014/10/7-million-dropbox-usernamepassword-pairs-apparently-leaked/

   "Popular online locker service Dropbox appears to have been hacked. A
    series of posts have been made to Pastebin purporting to contain login
    credentials for hundreds of Dropbox accounts, with the poster claiming
    that altogether 6,937,081 account credentials have been compromised.
    Reddit users who have tested some of the leaked credentials have
    confirmed that at least some of them work. Dropbox seems to have bulk
    reset all the accounts listed in the Pastebin postings, though thus
    far other accounts do not appear to have had their passwords reset.
    The hackers claim that they will release more username/password pairs
    if they receive donations to their bitcoin address."
