this was just added to my dropbox: cf.dropboxstatic.com.url

I do not know what it is, where it came from or how got to my dropbox 

when i click on it, it opens a blank internet page.

Anyone have any thoughts?

It appears to be a harmless link to dropbox cloud storage.

If it were in a shared-folder i would say another member dropped it there.

Just 'hit delete' .

Same just happened to me. This file "cf.dropboxstatic.com" was added to a folder where it shouldn't be. 

Question is why is it there in the first place?

Me too ... something fishy seems to be going on, and hopefully it's not malicious - fingers crossed!
