Software bug exposed Dropbox users' accounts to others


The accounts of people using Dropbox, a cloud computing service, were accessible to other users during a nearly four-hour period Sunday.

The breach was caused by a software update that affected the authentication mechanism of the service, the company said. Dropbox allows users to store files -- which can be anything including documents containing personal data and picture files -- on remote servers that are accessible from anywhere in the world.
