Most posters in comments say âoeencrypt your data before putting it in the dropbox folderâ as a solution.
They blithely ignore that the drop box closed source client with unknown capabilities sits on the computer running all the time. And itâ(TM)s safe to encrypt your data on a computer running a program that already been shown to have have deliberately violated your trust?
It could sniff passwords during encryption, it could make available ANY files on your computer not just the ones you want, it could do anything. The point is we donâ(TM)t know what it can/canâ(TM)t/could do, and we trust the rest of the computer it sits on?
Not having a go at drop box, Iâ(TM)m still going to keep using it, but astonished by the lunacy being displayed by users of a techie site. Encrypting your data on a computer running a program that has already shown to abuse/not respect trust is just crazy!!!!
