risks of using YouSendIt & DropBox & GoogleDrive

Are files exchanges risky (ie data got leaked, data got corrupted or infected with malware) using above mentioned?

I noticed that google drive don't allow files zipped with password to be uploaded (not even to attach to
gmail): purpose of zipped with passwd is to protect sensitive data (& convey the password to trusted
party via phone or other channels) but if encryption is disallowed, then we have risks of data leaks
(eg: Wiki Leaks?)
However, if we allow encryption, there's a chance a malware is inside the zip.  So this is a chicken &
egg issue or those tools mentioned provides encryption without risk of malwares being uploaded
