Kim Dotcom, the founder of encrypted file hosting service Mega, is warning users that it your data may no longer be safe on the service.
Doctom left Mega in 2013, less than a year after he had launched the file-sharing service, in pursuit of other interests.
In a user interview, he says that the New Zealand government (where Mega is based) has seized all his shares in the company and now controls the company, as well as saying that Hollywood has seized the Megashares in his family’s trust, though this is unverified.
“As a result of this and a number of other confidential issues, I don’t trust Mega anymore,” he said.
In a tweet today, he reiterated on the issue and said: “I will issue a detailed statement about the status of #Mega next week. Then you can make an educated decision if you still want to use it.”
