If some one visit Dropbox.xom its shows “Something went wrong. Dont worry, your files are still safe and the dropboxers have been notified.

Later Dropbox announced that its just a down and no security breach. Announced on their blog post that Dropbox site is back up! Claims of leaked user information are a hoax. The outage was caused during internal maintenance. Thanks for your patience! We are aware that the Dropbox site is currently down. This was caused during routine internal maintenance, and was not caused by external factors. We are working to fix this as soon as possible. We apologize for the inconvenience.
