The open nature of the html content and URLs used to access other resources used to render the page leaves the folder structure and location of those files vulnerable to robots, external hackers and malicious insider attacks, typically referred to as XSS attack.

XSS attack is easy to be launched with little efforts while its damage is severe in case of cloud.
