I am personally awaiting the first major ‘Cloud’ failure, or malicious attack.

That’s happened already. There’s been many data loss incidents in the cloud.

and successful attacks on the cloud are a regular occurrence. Not surprising, although cloud systems are expected to be better designed and better managed than the typical home PC, a cloud system is a much bigger target. Of course, some of these incidents you just have to laugh at.
