Apple account hack raises concern about cloud storage

Filed under: News — Charlie Summers @ 10:02 pm

From CNN: Apple account hack raises concern about cloud storage

From the article: “On Friday night, Wired technology journalist Mat Honan was brutally hacked. In a chain of events that Honan would unravel in the following days, hackers took advantage of security holes at Amazon and Apple to gain access to his iCloud account. They then took over his Gmail account, remotely wiped all data from his MacBook Air, iPhone and iPad, and took over his Twitter account as well as the Twitter account of his former employer, Gizmodo.”

Terrifying. I urge everyone to read this, and consider your data “in the cloud” is not only accessable by anyone, but no longer your data. If you give it to anyone, you will eventually lose it.

Wozniak: ‘I really worry about everything going to the cloud’

Filed under: News — Charlie Summers @ 2:12 pm

From ZDNet: Wozniak: ‘I really worry about everything going to the cloud’

From the article: “Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak has expressed serious concerns with the way people’s content is increasingly being held in the cloud, rather than stored locally on their computing devices…Wozniak suggested many people would discover problems with the way cloud-based content is often rented rather than owned.”

Too bad this generation doesn’t understand the implications of allowing companies access to all of their personal data. By the time they realize how bad an idea this really is, it’ll be way too late.
