    so i decided to go through my phone using Root Explorer (having lots of time at work today)
    and i found some stuff in my:
    "/data/system/dropbox" folder that kind of worries me.


    *i'm seeing about 75 text files, all named "dumpsys%3account@########" (the #'s are all different for each file)
    --inside each one (showing different content) is 5 lines of text showing things like,
    "com.facebook.auth.login,1" and "com.htc.socialnetwork.facebook,1" and other types of apps or services on my phone.
    ___the fact that it says "dumpsys" makes me think it's storing information that's unimportant.

    *i'm seeing about 150 text tiles, all named "event_data@########" (all the #'s are different for each file)
    --inside each one is 2 lines of text showing "start=###############" and "end=#############"

    *i'm seeing about 10 text files, all named, "system_app_wtf@##########.txt"
    --inside each one,the package accessed is "com.android.vending" (which is the market) and each text file contains at least 2-4 apps names that i've downloaded in the past 2 weeks. and then lower it shows "Persistent Package Monitor Receiver"--which i'm guessing means it will constantly check this package (android market) so. it looks like the app is data mining what i'm downloading in the market & storing it in dropbox files.

    **i'm seeing several files named "SYSTEM_BOOT@########.txt" which all show the
    --hardware, bootloader, radio, kernel, and build

    any of this seem any bit suspicious to people? or am i just looking too much into these files?
