Well, time to backup my lewds somewhere else.

I don't have anything important on there anyway, and while I use the password in multiple places, I don't use it for actual important things.

I know a couple of idiots who store their D pics on DropBox.
I also had a past client who worked with confidential legal documents and kept it all on DropBox...and never revoked my access. Some folks are just really careless. I'm glad I don't use DropBox; just because it's the popular choice, doesn't mean it's the best option.

Meh. I don't even use Dropbox. And honestly, I'd think by now that most of the people who were hacked on there back in 2012 would know by now and have changed their password/s, or don't use the site anymore. But, I do get everyone else's point about it.

I don't use drop box. I have numerous passwords for different things. I am worried that someday I'll reach my limit trying to remember them all. I think twice about joining new sites because it would add yet another password to the collection.

I changed my password just to be safe, although I'm not too worried about someone wanting to steal my college essays.

It's a good thing we have stuff like pens and paper.

"Blowfish is vulnerable to a birthday attack". This isn't an attack that affects the cipher itself, and only takes effect when large amounts of data is encrypted with Blowfish, so they still need to do a bruteforce to get the passwords. Basically, the blowfish passwords should be fine, not sure about the SHA-1'd ones.

If they want all of my crappy freshman year college essays go for it. You're an idiot storing sensitive personal information on so called "cloud" storage. The stuff gets hacked all the time, web security is a joke, it's why I still avoid online banking to this day, too many people I know have had bank accounts hacked.

Leading security experts recommend the use of a password manager to secure the scores of unique and complex passwords needed to properly secure the various login details needed for daily life. But recent attacks on companies including browser maker Opera, which stores and syncs user passwords, and password manager OneLogin, have exposed the dangers of using the tool. Picking the right password manager is just as crucial and using one in the first place.

I've only ever seen people upload art on it.
