    Of course Kirsh another angle to look at is that which says that no matter how much IT tries to control it, users will subvert directives and use their own cloud computing solutions – IT departments are better off to work proactively with users rather than batten down the hatches and be caught out with stuff like this

    It is a very good point too. I agree completely.

    Of course, in an enterprise cloud context, it would be possible to restrict service access to certain IPs, keep audit trails etc.

    When customers pay for services, they would expect these kinds of measures.

    It is also fairly common for people to use throw-away passwords for services they don’t care much for, and use strong passwords only on services important to them.
