'is it the default'...

* Default or not, does it really matter ? I say No! Because decades of network access up to now says you make no assumptions... Instead you double and treble check your locks always etc... Whereas what this says, is that the rise of the cloud is being purely driven by selfish corporate cost control.

* If so, its a true living nightmare scenario for the future of data security... As lawsuits won't fix this, fines won't fix this... This is why hackers / Cybercrims and scammers have already won the data wars uncontested imho. The recent VMWare Reg article 'Wants security industry to shrink' speaks volumes...
