now re-read it and replace 'e-mail' with 'file sharing service'

A typical (unencrypted) e-mail provider has three main adversaries:


The operator who has access to the server.
An attacker who can get access to the server.
An attacker who can intercept the communication to the server.

Despite the use of cryptography, Lavabit is also vulnerable to all three just like a conventional (unencrypted) e-mail service. The operator can, at any time, stop averting their eyes, an attacker who compromises the server can log the password a user transmits, and an attacker who can intercept communication to the server can obtain the password as well as the plaintext e-mail.
