Cloud Computing Security Issues

In my last post, I said that I do not like Cloud Computing due to security issues. 

If you want to know more about these issues, Network Computing has a great summation of HP’s “Seven Deadly Sins of Cloud Computing”. HP and the Cloud Security Alliance list the seven deadly sins as:

  1. Misuse of the Cloud – Using it to attack other hosts
  2. Unsecure API’s
  3. Malicious Insiders
  4. Configuration Issues
  5. Data leaking through the Cloud
  6. Account Hijacking
  7. Future/ Unknown Issues
