Dropbox Drops Other Shoe in Years-Old Data Breach

Dropbox last week confirmed that more than 68 million emails and passwords have been compromised from a hack that originally was disclosed in 2012. Exposure from the breach was limited to email addresses, Dropbox originally claimed. However, based on the latest revelations, the hackers actually stole hashed and salted passwords. Even so, there have been no indications that they succeeded in accessing user accounts, the company said. The firm apologized for the belated release of the information, saying it wanted to clear up the confusion.

Dropbox last week announced a Pro cloud-storage overhaul that includes new features and lower pricing. Improved security and better sharing controls are the focus of the new features, while a simplified pricing plan offers all Dropbox Pro users a full terabyte of storage for $9.99 per month.

Dropbox's Mailbox Lands on Mac Desktop

Dropbox, which acquired Mailbox last year, on Tuesday announced the availability of a Mac-only desktop beta version of the program. The beta is free, but you need a “betacoin” to download it. Betacoins are being emailed to existing users of the program, as well as people who sign up at the Mailbox website. Desktop Mailbox has a number of new features not found in its mobile doppelgangers. For example, there’s a draft mode that lets you work on a message across your devices.

Amazon launches cut-price Dropbox competitor Zocalo, takes a page from Microsoft’s monopolistic playbook

Jeff Bezos (Amazon) and Bill Gates, from way back in 2001
Amazon, after years of letting Dropbox ride its cloud storage coattails, is finally launching its own cloud storage and sharing service: Zocalo. Priced at just $5 per month for 200GB of storage, the oddly named Zocalo is about a third of the price of Dropbox. With the ability to annotate documents and integrate with your IT dept’s corporate directory, Zocalo is also going after Google Drive/Docs. This approach of imitating an existing product, but then attempting to do it bigger and better, is straight out of Microsoft’s 1990s heyday playbook. (And both Bezos and Gates live in Seattle, hmm…)
