Researchers Dhiru Kholia and Przemyslaw Wegrzyn have discovered a method to reverse-engineer Dropbox, which may open the door for open-source clients, but also gives attackers a way to intercept encrypted content and bypass the file sharing service’s two-factor authentication. The discovery has broader implications for the Internet, as the same methods could be used against any proprietary app built using the Python language. A Dropbox spokesperson said that while they “appreciate the contributions of these researchers,” the discovery “does not present a vulnerability in the Dropbox client.” Dropbox argues that the exploit will not work unless the user’s computer is already compromised. follow link
View Full Threads in Apple Mail
Many users are aware of Apple Mail's message threading feature, which highlights related email messages within the Inbox. However, many people don't know how to view both sent and received messages within a thread at once. To do so, first enable Message Threading under Mail's Viewing Preferences. Then, Command-click both the mailbox containing your threaded messages, and your Sent box. Now you can view both sent and received messages within the thread simultaneously.
