Is dropbox is dangerous on Linux?

0 votes

My computer was locking up and I couldn't open or close anything. I did a ps aux and found that dropbox was consuming 117% of the CPU and 70% of memory, after awhile I was able to Kill Dropbox and then I uninstalled it and now my computer is back to normal.

My Dropbox just updated its software (that is controlled through the Dropbox application, not the normal Linux package management), and that update process could have something to do with the program eating so much CPU and RAM.

I installed Dropbox and then it required Nautilus "to be restarted to function properly." When I clicked on "Nautilus Restart", my computer went locked up. Keyboard won't work and mouse arrow won't move around. I resorted to pushing the power button to shut the computer down. It happened in the previous version of Ubuntu 14.10 and then again in 15.04.

Is there a way to fix this problem? Your tips or help'll be greatly appreciated.
