Why moving your IT to the Cloud is probably a very bad idea
I'll write more on this later but these are good starting points :-
- One Misconfig (JIRA) to Leak Them All - Hundreds of Fortune 500 Companies The root cause behind the leak was the wild misconfiguration which was present in JIRA. Why the term "wild" being used is because, with the help of the same misconfiguration, I happened to access internal user data, internal project details of hundreds and thousands of companies which were using JIRA. The affected customers are NASA, Google, Yahoo, Go-Jek, HipChat, Zendesk, Sapient, Dubsmash, Western union, Lenovo, 1password, Informatica, to name but a few.
- Capital One Says Breach Hit 100 Million Individuals in US Data from about 100 million people in the US was illegally accessed after prosecutors accused a Seattle woman identified by Amazon Inc. as one of its former cloud service employees of breaking into the bank’s server.
Karl Denninger of Market Ticker adds: There you have it. The bank had data that was highly confidential and let another company with thousands of people who could access it, none of whom the bank knew by name or could vet, have said data by intentionally putting it on that other firm's computer systems in the name of cloud computing.
- Apple To Add New Security Alerts Following iCloud Hack In response to the recent debacle that exposed multiple celebrities by hackers breaking into their personal Apple accounts and leaking private images on the web, Apple has stated it plans to launch additional security alerts warning users of possible intrusion.
- Entire company locked out of emails and other Google services. Company uses Google accounts that are all connected. Someone in that company was a bit naughty and that resulted in a complete ban/block on the Google account and ALL associated accounts. Everyone in his company is now blocked by Google and some of their personal e-mails are also blocked as well.
- Microsoft Cloud Data Breach Heralds Things to Come What might be the first major cloud data breach happened Wednesday. Microsoft announced that data contained within its Business Productivity Online Suite (BPOS) has been downloaded by non-authorized users. You'd better get used to this kind of thing because we'll be seeing a lot more of it in the future. All any of us can do is pray we're not a victim.
- Microsoft Red-Faced After Massive Sidekick Data Loss Unlucky T-Mobile Sidekick owners lost their contacts, calendar entries, to-do lists and photos this weekend when Microsoft subsidiary Danger suffered a technical glitch. Not all T-Mobile Sidekick owners were impacted, and the actual extent of the data loss is unclear. However, those affected have little hope of recovering lost data, according to Microsoft.
