Dropbox…opening my docs? | wncinfosec.

The opened docs were .doc files and the user agent was–actually a surprise!–LibreOffice. I’m no fan of LibreOffice but do appreciate the community it has gathered, and I can’t believe that the actual community is involved in this interesting behaviour. What gives? I mean, with Dropbox. I can imagine that it could have to do with translating .doc files to .odt for save in space, and that the conversion would be neutral. But in that case, wouldn’t it be in Dropbox’s interest to do what Google does and make any such conversion clear, if that is indeed what is occurring?
