Oops: Dropbox Left All User Accounts Wide Open For Four Hours This Weekend

Of course, this also raises interesting points concerning the big question of "cloud" security. Many people have suggested that relying on some third party -- such as Dropbox -- is inherently insecure. However, that assumes that an individual who goes a different route would be able to create a more secure system on their own. I'm sure that's true for some people, but it might not be the case for the everyday user. In the long run, you would hope that these remote service providers can implement stronger security, so that individuals don't have to. But, in the short run, I wouldn't be surprised to see more such stories of less-than-optimal security being exposed at these kinds of service providers.
