Office 365 Data Up for Grabs

Microsoft hid a major bit of news right in the middle of an obscure whitepaper. The paper describes how Office 365 security works...or perhaps I should say, how it doesn't work.

Here's the deal. Microsoft believes it has the right and duty to hand over your data when it suits Microsoft, the government's or another party's interests. It doesn't even have to ask.

Of course this is all in a "limited number of circumstances." Right, and aneurysms affect only a limited number of people. But when you get one, it still hurts like heck.
