A malware campaign targeting Danish-speaking users via Dropbox, sheds light on the dangers tied to the use of the popular file-hosting service in the enterprise.  

In a report written by security experts at AppRiver that describes the campaign, thousands of messages were blasted out to users with the aim of infecting their machines with malware. Denmark, Germany and “several surrounding Scandinavian countries” were targeted by the attack.

The cloud storage service quickly responded and shut down the attack, but not before users were sent messages that included a phony invoice that was a malicious .zip archive equipped with a JavaScript file containing a Trojan.

A majority of the links were disabled within two hours, according to an interview on CSO Online.
