Twitter Breach Revives Cloud Security Fears
Some interest groups are urging Los Angeles to rethink its plan to implement Google Apps.
Last month’s breach of a hosted Google Apps implementation used by Twitter Inc. has heightened fears in some quarters that cloud computing could pose significant security and privacy risks to users.
The Twitter breach gave a hacker access to confidential company documents via an employee’s work Gmail account that had been hijacked through the password reset feature.
Shortly after the breach, some public interest groups and local law enforcement officials cited potential security concerns in calling on the city of Los Angeles to reconsider plans to replace its Novell GroupWise e-mail and Microsoft Office software with Google Inc.’s hosted e-mail and office productivity applications.
