I know for my Access, i use a key ... i do not keep my cloud active,
thats about the only thing disabled actually... service with them on
EC2 is great to, VPS has no plain text pass, all of those have
keyfile, then you have to convert the keyfile using putty , i guess
the key could maybe be grabbed and ofcourse if they can access account
and download the file, if the user is *still* using that.... i know my
cloud service is off by default, so i wonder how this affects users on
the amazon-management console ec2/free service.. i assume that cloud
has to be active to be exploited... right?

"We had free access to all customer data, including authentication
data, tokens, and even plain text passwords," said RUB researcher
Mario Heiderich. "It's a chain reaction. A security gap in the complex
Amazon shop always also directly causes a gap in the Amazon cloud."

Its very alarming that the passwords are stored in the plain text. It
speaks volumes to their security posture and [lack of] abilities.
