As the evolution of the global electronic community increases, so does the likelihood of unethical computer behavior. New cloud storage and computing services that are accessible from Apple, and will be available from Microsoft, may further fuel growing online security concerns. These services will enable the user to store and access their personal information from any device. However, in order to access this information, these devices will need to recognize you. It appears no one is completely immune to unauthorized identity access. Recently, there was a malfunction with Firewall and Chinese residents had access to President Obama’s Google + page. Accessing unauthorized personal information is not solely carried out by the online community. Facebook has recently admitted to viewing text messages of users who downloaded their smart phone applications. Clearly, the online community might alleviate security concerns by adapting a more serious attitude toward the ethical issues raised as computer technology progresses.
