No. 336 - Bochum, 24.10.2011 Massive security flaws at Amazon Web Services discovered and remedied RUB researchers present hack at the ACM Cloud Computing Security Workshop in Chicago Researchers from Ruhr-University Bochum have found a massive security gap at Amazon Cloud Services. Using different methods of attack (signature wrapping and cross site scripting) they tested the system which was deemed “safe”. “Based on our research results, Amazon confirmed the security gaps and closed them immediately”, said Prof. Cloud computing: gaps in the “cloud”

Researcher cracks Wi-Fi passwords with Amazon cloud High performance access to file storage A security researcher has tapped Amazon's cloud computing service to crack Wi-Fi passwords in a fraction of the time and for a fraction of the cost of using his own gear. Thomas Roth of Cologne, Germany told Reuters he used custom software running on Amazon's Elastic Compute Cloud service to break into a WPA-PSK protected network in about 20 minutes. With refinements to his program, he said he could shave the time to about six minutes. With EC2 computers available for 28 cents per minute, the cost of the crack came to just $1.68. “People tell me there is no possible way to break WPA, or, if it were possible, it would cost you a ton of money to do so,” Roth told the news service.

Mon “cloud” ...
OwnCloud 3 Par ces temps de dématérialisation des espaces de stockages, les services en ligne comme Dropbox et SpiderOak focalisent à la fois des commentaires admiratifs (facilité d'utilisation, fiabilité) et réticents (protection de la vie privée, pérennité du service à moyen et long terme, prix). Du bon coté de la force, les alternatives libres et auto-hébergées commencent à pointer le bout de leurs nez. Une de ces solutions a eut droit à son petit buzz ces dernières semaines: OwnCloud. J'apporte donc ma petite pierre à l'édifice en vous proposant une installation et une configuration de OwnClound version 3 sur un serveur Debian Squeeze sous NGinx.

The cloud isn’t new. The personal cloud is. “The current state [of the cloud] is this type of digital locker,” explained Gartner Research’s Michael Gartenberg. But with last year’s release of iCloud and Microsoft improving its Windows Live Skydrive, the cloud has begun to move toward a multi-device synchronization model, with users able to sync and update files across all of their gadgets.

Ultimate iCloud Guide: Everything You Need to Know Even before Apple’s iCloud came along, the idea of “the cloud” was, well, nebulous. Apple’s definition is a method by which you can synchronize all your data—such as photos, music, calendars, address books, and eBooks—wirelessly between all your devices over the Internet. No sync cables, no drag and drop. The cloud also provides backup, since copies of all that data live not on puffy white cushions but on servers in a warehouse. Apple’s new, mostly free iCloud service is a latecomer to the genre. Google’s been at it for nearly a decade.
