Almost 18 months after the issue was first made known to Dropbox, unauthorised users continue to receive links to personal, private information stored on the file-sharing service.
I think it’s a pretty sad state of affairs that months can pass, and the BBC has to be called in, before a service like Dropbox takes seriously a security concern impacting the privacy of its users.
If you are using file-sharing systems like Dropbox and Box without proper care and attention, there is a risk that you could be unwittingly leaking your most private, personal information to others.
Facebook has announced that it is rolling out what appears to be a major change to its privacy settings.
But at the same time, it has missed a massive opportunity to lead the way on privacy.
