If you want your data to have any real security when stored in the cloud I would make sure it's encrypted before transmitting it. If I was storing in the cloud I think I would use TrueCrypt. I know, I know, TrueCrypt has been somewhat controversial over the past few years, but I still believe it's a secure encryption technolody. Besides, it's been getting attention from the Open Source community since the TC guys mysteriously, and cryptically, called it quits.

Ikon, you are right.

I only use the Truecrypt 7.1a and the clouds outside the US: Jottacloud in Norway, and Wuala (default encrypted) in Switzerland.

Not really a mystery. GRC has a good theory about why.

Also, there has been issues with open source support of Secure boot.

Yes, but Steve's ideas are just that: ideas. Apparently, no one outside the inner circle seems to know exactly what happened.

Yes, but of all the theories I've heard, it's the one that makes the most sense. Especially given the open source community......

What are the current theories? I've moved away from TC. May revisit.

I don't say Steve's hypothesis is wrong; only that it's unproven. I haven't read any ideas that make more sense.

I suggest you read Steve's article yourself and decide if it makes sense for you: https://www.grc.com/misc/truecrypt/truecrypt.htm
