Dropbox Mega-Breach confirmed.

Over 60 million email addresses and passwords were hacked from Dropbox years ago. That data is floating around the folks on DarkNet. It is older and apparently not being marketed, yet some hacker have it. Even though the breach happened years back, the data still has value. People often rarely change their password. Similar Mega Breach data from prior breaches at LinkdIn and Tumblr, was being bought, sold and traded on DarkNet markets.
