1475201 - Streamwork to Scribd Security Issue

Symptom

Concerns on data confidentiallity for all documents uploaded using the Scribd feature.

There is a clear statement in the "Extensions" tab that uploaded content into StreamWork will also be available in Scribd when function is enabled.  What are the security concerns users should be aware of?

Resolution

Documents uploaded to Scribd do not get published to Scribd in any public way – it’s completely private, locked to their Activity, and encrypted.  

If you delete the document from the activity, it will NOT be accessible from scribd.  The document is uploaded to scribd in order to run its iPaper conversion only and is not accessible from ANYWHERE except from within the Streamwork activity.
