<< Data was stolen from an Amazon Web Services-based storage bucket, which included more than 140,000 Social Security numbers >>

How about all of these 'data breach!!! data was taken OUT OF THE CLOUD!!!!' articles instead start with

"Data was PUT INTO Amazon Web Services, which is a sketchy private company with an extremely bad reputation owned by the world's richest man who is currently being blackmailed and who many Amazon users hope, against all the evidence, isn't a literal Bond Villain.."


@natecull Boggles me that this is done by the same grade of companies as those who just a few years ago wouldn't trust their backups to less than Iron Mountain. Amazon is not Iron Mountain. This should be obvious. And yet... Despite that a live database is much more potentially devastating than a tape archive. Grr.
