Dropbox today released a security update for its client software, patching a serious security flaw.

"Prior to this update, all a third party needed to do to gain access to someone’s Dropbox account was to copy the Dropbox configuration files from one PC to another," writes ZDNet's Adrian Kingsley-Hughes.

"Dropbox version 1.2.48 fixes this serious vulnerability," Kingsley-Hughes writes.
