Submission + - Deleted cloud files can be recovered from smartphones, researchers find (infoworld.com)

tsamsoniw writes: "Researchers from the University of Glasgow have discovered that they could fully recover images, audio files, PDFs, and Word documents deleted from Dropbox, Box, and SugarSync, using both an HTC Android smartphone and an iPhone. They created 20 different test files, including Words docs, PDFS, and JPGs, uploaded them via a PC to the various services, and synced the services with the mobile devices. They accessed and manipulated the files in varying ways (e,g accessing them online once, saving them offline), then used a forensics toolkit to attempt to reconstruct files with artifacts saved to the phone."
