Re: more of the same
@RyanSepe: I have heard from highly regulated entities that they have experiences with cloud vendors with 360-degree auditing -- i.e., that in addition to auditing the vendor, the vendor audits the customer to ensure that they are doing what they need to do to be secure while using their platform. A great example of teamwork -- and it would be a great way to prevent the kind of brand damage AWS has suffered from this kind of thing.

Of course, one of AWS's biggest selling points is its accessibility for even the smallest of businesses/entities -- so that's pretty impractical (at least, at the personalized level) for AWS for its smaller clients.

Re: more of the same
Agree 100%. I think its a tragic principle of a lack of education. By that I mean, Amazon does a great job to ensure that they configure their product to be a secure iteration by default. (Not overly stringent, but gets the job done) Unfortunately, it is then handed off to a NON-Amazon entity (corporate IT entity) who may not be overly familiar with how the S3 bucket is set up. By default this will restrict them from performing the function they need to support the business, so what will they do? They will remove the safeguards to allow them to do said function. In the process, removing any secure configuration they may have had.

Geezalou, another freakin' gross misconfiguration of S3-bucket access. This has been a huge trend over the past couple of years (despite the fact that the default settings tend to be more secure) -- to the point that AWS has had to change their UI a little.

I expect the trend to continue. Stupidity doesn't just end.
