    It is scary that most users think their devices are behind firewall and secured, but all lovely "cloud" services allow to access them via the master control service (WD Live servers).

    Same can be said to most IoT devices for our homes where you need "cloud" account to access them remotely. Even you have VPN and want really secure direct access.

    I guess My Book is an open book.

    Sorry, I thought I had this pun covered, but I lacked the spine to really bind it together.
