Title: Vulnerable as a Service
Cloud computing was supposed to make infrastructure outsourcing both easier and less expensive than maintaining one’s own data centers. Many cloud providers also offer much better security by also outsourcing systems maintenance and updates and creating a programmable infrastructure that in principle should be easier to secure in a systematic way. Instead, we are seeing new sorts of vulnerabilities emerge most likely because the complexity of the cloud offerings, the lack of experience operating systems not on premises and perhaps just plain sloppiness on the part of the operational staff. The result is unnecessarily exposed systems that inevitably get attacked.
