Re: Users need to know that

You will note a few things in my post and the article. One thing you will notice is that I mentioned Microsoft first, and started by talking about their and Google's drive services. I referred to both of them for a specific reason: the article compared those and found problems in both. Google was faster at removal but stored more malware in aggregate, or didn't you read it? As for the translate links, I believe an attacker could use Microsoft's translation service to the same effect, but I have not seen it used yet. I have seen Google's used in that way, and it is a similar method to cloak the real source of content online.

Whataboutism is a method of distracting from a point. I did not distract from the problem of malware in Microsoft's cloud, and in fact the only other place I mentioned was the one the article used as a comparison.
