Dropbox Safety Leak

Until it is fixed you should be careful, what you put in your private galleries.

This line, entered in Google, gives EVERYONE access to a lot of PRIVATE galleries:
"site:http://www.dropbox.com/gallery"

I found 249000 entries with this line, and all the ones I tested directly pointed me to the private galleries of dropbox-users, including their account names.

Dropbox and Google are both informed of the issue, but it may take a while, so be careful.

   I believe that the issue has been resolved now. No need for worry anymore! However, for safe measures, I always upload stuff to my server, instead of a free, widely used program like Dropbox where there are sometimes problems. Just a thing to think about when giving companies like Dropbox your valuable games, apps, and other information/belongings.
