It is funny because it is kind of a lose-lose. If you need your documents to be secure, private and safe guarded, one might say you should not store them on an online service provider site. However storing them locally opens up the door to local exploits (like those mentioned above). So you have to pick the lesser of two evils... and we all know which choice that is...;-)
my data is my data, I will never upload it unto some ambiguous server somewhere where the user of that server can do whatever they want with your data. Here one day gone the next.
I find it suprising people are so willing to throw their important data into space and just pray nothing happens. As venetisan said... chances of your computer coming under attack where someone is looking to steal documents? Or a big online server where 10000 of people store documents. Where would you go if you were looking to steal data? Yes we all know which choice that is.
