    May be a great deal ado about nothing but probably doesn’t hurt to be aware in any case…

    Network World has identified a case where certain files are being opened by DropBox cloud services…

    Dropbox takes a peek at some kinds of uploaded files. That’s normal, the web storage service says.

    The disclosure comes after a test of the service found that several “.doc” files were opened after being uploaded to Dropbox.

    Dropbox’s behavior was detected using HoneyDocs, a new Web-based service that creates a log showing when and where a document was opened, according to a blog post at WNC InfoSec.
