The cloud is not a good place to store your goodies, is all I'm gonna say.

I've seen in Norton that Last Pass fixed this before that article was in fact published. This from a user as an example of how fast some organizations can fix things!

But on "in the cloud", a number of applications dependent on the cloud are having problems ranging from not getting updates to not being able to reach the stuff the store only in the cloud for the user .....

And yes, points to LastPass for fixing it promptly, but still ..."not getting updates" ...

Some of this stuff is on Apple or Microsoft's app store, where it can take a while for updates to get approved and generally available, and it's anybody's guess as to how many people check for updates regularly.

I have the perhaps luddite and benighted opinion that an app that stores passwords in the cloud has, in effect, a huge blinking neon sign saying "Yo! Hackers! This is the place!"
