Cloud Computing dominates the headlines these days but like most paradigm changes this introduces new risks and new opportunities for us to consider. Some deep technical research has gone into the underlying technologies (like Virtualization) but to some extent this serves only to muddy the waters when considering the overall threat landscape.

The talk will focus both on attacks against the cloud and on using these platforms as attack tools for general Internet mayhem.
