    Arroryn we're all dooooooomed

    I was searching for free word processing solutions yesterday, when I came across this from Adobe.

    Web2.0... here we come.

    The idea of a web-based text editor with a good look-and-feel is awesome. The interface on it seems really good, and I like its collaboration ideas.

    But does anyone know how secure it truly is? I'm not talking about putting my budget breakdown or anything on here, but I wouldn't want to put a lot of work up there for it to be removed...

    well who knows how secure it is, its over https so thats a good start but im sure that alot of the the office online packages (googledocs and the one you mention) do look very tempting to would be information thieves. Saying that if nothing personal or financial would be going up there then feel free, just make sure you use a totally different password from the ones you normally use.

    Greetings from Adobe and thanks for checking out Buzzword. As another reply indicated, we do transmit all document information encrypted (though they are not stored encrypted). This goes a long way in ensuring that your documents are safe.

    Beyond that, Buzzword documents are accessible only to you, the author, and Buzzword users with whom you explicitly share the document. If an unauthorized user has the document URL, they will not be able to open the document. We posted an entry on this on our blog a couple months ago – check out http://blogs.adobe.com/acom/2008/05/securing_webbased_documents.html.

    This is an important issue, and those of us working to make web-based applications useful, usable, safe and secure are working hard to win your trust!
