Yep, be sure to blame the customers....

Although to be fair, if you're going to store "sensitive data", you should probably check whether the service defaults to "public" .. even if that is a dumb default.

I'm sure this makes businesses feel great about shelling out hundreds of dollars a year for Office 365.  ::)

Of course, they'll probably keep using it too.  ::)
