According to whom? Wasn't there one time when anybody could get unlimited access to anybody else's Dropbox account simply by knowing their email address?

>If a company that is good at large-scale cloud computing can get hacked and lose 68 million passwords, imagine how hard this stuff is.

That doesn't make any sense. Doesn't the breach of this "good" company mean that it's relatively *easy* to hack them?

He could have written that. he never mentioned security, and instead vaguely referred to "this stuff."

Not my fault the source material is so shoddily written.
