Today i decided to uninstall dropbox, after realizing what Eduard Snowden said!
But honestly, the main reason was the level of intrusion this company have, once i connect my smartphone to my computer, a dropbox popup asks me to save them to Dropbox, once i take a screen capture, you guessed it, a popup asks me to save it on Dropbox!!!
Why in the world should anyone save a screenshot on a cloud hosting service? how many screenshots do you take in your entire life, and what size would they add up to!
Hackers claim to have stolen a database of 7 million Dropbox login credentials, Dropbox denies it though.
The first leakage was posted last Monday on Pastebin & contained 400 usernames & protected passwords.
The user of that pastebin account said that Bitcoin donation will reveal more and more of these accounts, since then the list have grown by several hundreds.
Anton Mityagin a security engineer at Dropbox said that the user accounts that were hacked are not real they are fake. He also said that the user names and passwords that were hacked are no way related to Dropbox and are of different service(s). And that your information is safe with Dropbox.
Only time will tell, if Dropbox was really hacked or not!
