I love Dropbox.

Best thing ever for Uni coursework, Dissertation is soo much easier.

Just wish my house mates would take my advice and use it as 2 of them have lost 3 days of dissertation work due to crashes.


DROPBOX FTW!

Everything in my dropbox is encrypted & password protected.

Duh!

This is pretty shameful, though.

I use dropbox for a lot of things OTHER then sensitive data.
I mean who is stupid enough to transfer sensitive data over a cloud service....
I use it mainly for pictures, some mp3, and Factory service manuals for cars.

I run a business and the cloud, to me, is not a substitute for in house computer power. To the people shipping off their sensitive data and hard work they deserve to have it stolen. If you use offsite backup; back it up yourself, encrypt it, and then upload it in a container file. This day and age where people are not concerned about privacy kills me, but that's another post entirely

Cloud computer hasn't really gotten anywhere these past years...that's sad. Let's see...the next possible candidates could be AmazonCloud, Ubuntu Linux (Cloud Version), oh god.

Um. Why? Be smart about what you upload and you won't have any problems.

I think you're thinking of something along the lines of like rainbow tables. And I doubt any simpletons password contains 64 chars. Most passwords are like "password, dog, puppy, princess" etc. Simple things you can find in the dictionary.

It will take freaking forever, but it can be done.
Also depends on what kind of power your rig has too.
But I have been reading about people using GPU power to brute force, which is substantially quicker than CPU brute forcing.

If you have an important documents...NEVER..put it in the cloud or anywhere online, in fact. Only put what you will allow others to see.

Mozilla has already had their forum database hacked.

This flaw isn't so bad. They could easily force a host id change and add user auth on top of host auth. I'm not sure why some people are acting like the encryption has been broken. The hack here is the same as all the other security flaws of someone gaining physical access to your system.

The easiest way of limiting brute forcing is max amount of tries within a given time frame. You won't be able to try 1000 passwords in a minute...

Wait. What leak? I don't recall reading about a leak.
What I'm reading is people blowing this out of the water.
