I'm in favor of security. We use all MS has to offer on Azure (and pay for it)... And than comes in a company to tell that all is BS and list a book of propositions have very vague connection to security, just to prove the prize and spread fear... But at the end of the day they can't take a bit of information out of our DB (even they collected a lot of useless info on the environment and make a lot of wrong assumptions about the development base).

An investment analysis and advisory service I use has been continuously online for 30 years, but I think someone got a little lax. Friday, 12/17, the system went down due to a ransomware attack. It just came back online about 10:00 this morning. I'm betting there will be a few changes in the IT department!
I was at the supermarket an hour ago, and the cashier didn't know the code to unlock the cash-register. So she called a coworker who shouted the passcode from the other side of the store. So, I had to place a remark there on security, at which she claimed the code is changed daily. Yah, that explains why the coworker knows 8 numbers from the top of his head. Probably learning them each morning by heart in case he needs to shout it ad hoc.
I don't trust anyone.

I think you have to use cloud platforms, they are platforms and its up to you to secure your code and data on these platforms. Companies selling products to add security to cloud platforms save you the work as they would be a kind of framework you adapt to secure your code or encapsulate your work in their security. You need to do your due diligence at a technical level before you adopt a cloud platform and also how you will adapt security to it.

Youtube got confused by my work account (why suddenly.. I know not... though I did change my password, because I forgot the previous one, seems to have played a role) anyway.. Youtube was suddenly full of stupid useless stuff... And new music, this one was good!
"Suddenly" is not a word I would use to describe YouTube's decline...

FYI, I am a 16 meme-loving Halo-playing nerd who eventually will be programming the future Halo Games, so don't even judge me.
Really I just wanted to share the link so you can post it to your friends. Doesn't even look like one in the title. So your welcome to the reasonable people who will want to read this as a link to use instead of a "childish" trick...

Somehow I doubt you will be programming Halo games if the only original thought you have to contribute to this forum is a outdated trick that was childish and adolescent when it was first devised nearly 15 years ago.
