comment Do heuristics exist for modeling the “harmlessness” of a file?
@Shadur: Sorry, but appears you are presenting uncalled for assumptions, maybe being argumentative, and that your comments are at best semi-related to the topic of the question. Both on-system and off-system services have there strengths & weaknesses, and the question in no way takes a position on how best to use them.

comment Do heuristics exist for modeling the “harmlessness” of a file?
@Shadur: I see. In my opinion, someone that would knowingly give away their access credentials in the way you've described likely has larger security issues than any automated security service would ever be able to account for; point being that it might be possible to account for that pattern, but the pattern is so fundamental of a concept, that it is not worth automating a solution for, and the the real issue is that the user lacks a basic understanding of security; or at least that's my opinion.
