Re: ATTENTION DROPBOX USERS

If you do a Google search for "dropboxmail.com", you'll see it has been hacked in the past. It's best to use your distro's repos in any case. Howdy my friend Ken. Long time no see :) I need your help here old time Minter. It seems I stirred up the forum and created some real confusion. So...

Re: ATTENTION DROPBOX USERS

Very informative, grizzler, You are talking about the right way to install Dropbox. The link you mention is the vendor's download site from where one can install the basic Dropbox software, which by the way, is a third party, partly free thing.

Re: ATTENTION DROPBOX USERS

Whenever I get a message saying I need to update something, I go to the website of that something and see what the latest version is. I never trust email notifications. Hello jimallyn, Good advice.

Re: ATTENTION DROPBOX USERS

Alright! It happened to me! What makes you think that most people would be eager to help if they did the same stupid thing as I did.
I hope it hasn't happened to anyone else but let's wait and see.

Re: ATTENTION DROPBOX USERS

Could you please give more details? Did you read this somewhere? If yes, provide links. Did you experience this on your computer? If yes, could you please describe what you did?

I've been away for a while, visiting the Squeegee islands (it's very humid there).

About to install Mint 16 Cinnamon, which looks very nice!
