Snowden: Dropbox is an NSA surveillance target, use Spideroak instead

A remarkable moment from last night's remarkable Snowden video from the Guardian.

In a discussion (around the 7:40 mark) of zero-knowledge systems whose operators can't spy on you even if they want to, Snowden reminds us that Dropbox is an NSA surveillance target cited in the original Prism leaks, and that the company has since added Condoleeza Rice, "probably the most anti-privacy official we can imagine," to its Board of Directors.

He contrasts Dropbox with its competitor, Spideroak, whose system is structured so that it can't betray you, even if Condi Rice wanted it to.
