Porn Popups (Score: 2, Interesting) by email@example.com in When is your data not your own? When it's in the cloud on 2014-05-21 23:32 (#1TX) So, lets say after reading http://pipedot.org/story/2014-05-16/what-is-your-offsite-storage-solution you pick a cloud storage provider with a family plan and set up everyone's desktops to automatically back up to the service. As what happens (all too often with non-technical family members), someone is tricked into running dancing_pigs.exe which downloads a whole slew of malware and viruses to the computer. Pretty soon, anything you do on this computer spawns a porn popup. Trying to close the popup, of course, spawn three more popups.What if one of these malware ads includes an image from the forbidden list and then gets backed up to the cloud because it's in the temporary Internet files? FBI comes and knocks on their door? Or my door if I'm the account holder of the family plan, even though it's not my computer?
