Submission + - OneDrive being policed by Microsoft (bbc.com)

Modern writes: As reported by the BBC and probably unbeknownst to the public in general "A tip-off from Microsoft has led to the arrest of a man in Pennsylvania who has been charged with receiving and sharing child abuse images. It flagged the matter after discovering that an image involving a young girl had been allegedly saved to the man's OneDrive cloud storage account."
Stated in the article are other services that have also reported misconduct to various law enforcement divisions. Url below.

According to court documents, the man was subsequently detected trying to send two illegal pictures via one of Microsoft's live.com email accounts.
