    Hey Y'all,

    I was catching up on some tech reading and came across this Office Watch article on Identity theft. This is one of the reasons I personally don't like Cloud storage or MS Accounts as Login credentials. YMMV HTH
    May the Forces of good computing be with you!

    Granted Microsoft wants everyone to connect to the cloud and took what seems to be an absurdly long time to issue a patch. But, this is not really any different that other "social engineering" exploits. Open a hacked bogus attachment that sends you to a "bad" website.

    Just another reinforcement for people to be careful.
