Default Dropbox security claims

This may be news to some.

Dropbox Lied to Users About Data Security, Complaint to FTC Alleges | Threat Level |

By coincidence I've been thinking about using dropbox, or something like it. The privacy issue wasn't at the top of my concerns -- reliability is -- but the advertised security features of dropbox impressed me about the service in general. Plus they have an app for BlackBerry and probably will for PlayBook one day. Now I'm going to hold off and watch things shake out some more.

Good looking out. I downloaded it, but have not used it. This gives me pause.

I have been using dropbox for about a month. The security is not an issue for me and I have been very happy with dropbox
