Last week, I read some commentary about Dropbox by Derek Newton that left me thinking that what he was raising as a security issue was not necessarily a huge deal. So today, when I saw more references to Dropbox, I thought it was just continued discussion of his commentary. Thankfully, Chris Soghoian tweeted, “How Dropbox sacrifices user privacy for cost savings. New privacy flaw, not related to Kevin Newton’s recent disclosure. ”
I just read Chris’s commentary, and for now, all I can say is, if you’re using Dropbox, do yourself a favor and read his analysis immediately.
