Dropbox Lack of Security – Miguel de Icaza

Dropbox recently announced an update to its security terms of service in which they announced that they would provide the government with your decrypted files if requested to do so.

I am a long time Dropbox user and think it’s swell.
On the other hand, I don’t think I — or anyone else — had expectations that it will refuse DoJ requests or warrants.

(I know that this isn’t Icaza’s point. But we really don’t know what level of disclosure Dropbox can realistically provide law enforcement officials.)
