Security flaw in Dropbox, maybe popular with small businesses, reported

Some small businesses or even home users may use a product called Dropbox to access their private files from any computer they own.  Christopher White has an article at NeoWin about a major security hole that could expose all of someone’s private memos to anyone on the Internet, with the story “Major dropbox security flaw discovered”, link here. The most practical recommendation might seem like overkill to most home users – encrypt everything on your computers “anyway”.  But the fix is not as simple as changing a password.
