More to come, keep showing your support

So if you have a dropbox account, our suggestion would be that you immediately change your password. Also, ensure that you do not keep confidential information, personal or of your enterprise on cloud based storage services. We would also like enterprise to setup their own dropbox like service with better safety in place.


Hdfc Securities phishing mail

Beware of a mail which has the following content 'Important announcement for all users' claiming to be from HDFC Securities. Do not click on any links provided as it will redirect you to a forged site which will ask for sensitive information. For that matter, do not believe any mail asking you to change your credentials. You should regularly keep changing your passwords and check with your bank or financial institute whether they support two-factor authentication and get it implemented.
