Soghoian Files Complaint to FTC About Dropbox


The complaint alleges that at least two of Dropbox’s competitors, SpiderOak and Wuala, make security promises similiar to those of Dropbox, but actually can’t get at the data because they don’t hold the encryption keys. That means those services have to spend more on storage, because they can’t detect duplicate files stored by different users. That, according to the complaint, lets Dropbox promise total security without paying the costs, while putting its competitors at a disadvantage.

This is the same Christopher Soghoian from the Facebook/Google and boarding pass stories. I discussed the Dropbox security issue here.

That Soghoian family has good genes or good shared values or something...
