Corporate users of Microsoft’s OneDrive cloud storage are increasingly storing files there that contain passwords.  According to a report released last month, “enterprises are routinely storing corporate password files in the cloud through Microsoft’s OneDrive backup technology.”

And the security risk is getting worse and growing.

The average corporate OneDrive service contains 204 unencrypted files labelled “passwords”.

This risky practice has actually increased over the last few months.  [Corporations] averaged 143 “password” files uploaded to OneDrive in Q3 2015. (source)
