Dropbox File Transfer - Good or Evil File?

Dropbox File Transfer - Good or Evil File?

New member | Level 2

I am a Mac User (latest OS) using Outlook 365 for Mac. I received an email from no-reply@Dropbox.com that has a file transfer in it (a PDF file) from someone I don't know.  I can't find the domain name associated with the email address online either. 

 

Could this be be malicious ? Is there a way to check without compromising my system or should I just report it to Dropbox?

 

Thanks for the perspective.

That isnt how file transfer works 🙂 File transfer is you send somebody a request for a file and they upload to your Dropbox, so, its almost certainly fake. 

 

Try sending it to abuse@dropbox.com
