comment Encrypting files on Google Drive
Good discussion. If you were to use one of those mentioned services such as Boxcrypt then your unencrypted files will be passing right through there servers. I see no reason to trust Boxcrypt anymore than Google?

"What are the odds of someone using the same password but different usernames?" what do you mean? If it's a common password or a week one there is a good chance another person would use this password. On the other hand there are people who do use the same passwords for everything.

"Attackers then use these lists to try and find other sites that those people have accounts on" right but this wouldn't be known. If cracked db for xyz.com has been put on the market and a hacker is trying to get into abc.com even if the same individual used the same password on abc.com as they did on xyz.com the attack wouldn't know the username. Or is your scenario supposing they did? Even so it wouldn't be known which sites the individual used the same password/username on.

I disagree with points b) and c) it is not known to an attack if the same password is used on different sites and what the login name may be
