Important statement to all CloudMe users
If you have read about the espionage campaign exposed by Blue Coat Labs, that leveraged CloudMe to store stolen data, it does not affect any normal accounts. The trojan is spread through emails and other channels, and is not spread through CloudMe. Once installed it uploads data to accounts the attackers have created in advance. This is similar to any other user uploading data to their own account.
Up to this date is has focused on specific regions and types of people, at top positions like financing industry, diplomats and military.

As a CloudMe user this means that you have nothing to worry about, your account is safe. CloudMe is also actively monitoring accounts used by the people behind Inception and permanently deleting such accounts, since they are violating our terms of service. The reason we remove these accounts are to help affected people and do what we can to fight crime.
Your CloudMe Team
Your entire CloudMe account is now accessible via WebDAV – a solution that allows you to mount CloudMe as a network drive on your computer. When connecting to CloudMe via WebDAV you’ll notice that in addition to the xios folder, the equivalent of Cloud Drive, that contains all your photos, music, videos and documents, there are now two additional read-only folders that give you access to your WebShares and Favorites.
For our Windows users, we recommend using the free solution from NetDrive, as seen in the image below. For our Mac and Linux users, your operating systems provide built in support.
Combine our recently added drag-n-drop feature with the xios WebDAV folder and now you have an extremely convenient way to effortlessly upload and download all your files and folders to and from your CloudMe account from your desktop. Remember, connecting to CloudMe is as easy as 1,2,3!
