This article discusses some recently found security flaws in the Amazon web service cloud computing architecture. Fortunately, these flaws were first found by German researchers and no customers have fell victim to the exploits. Researchers were able to gain administrative status thus giving them access to any and all of the users data. Amazon has since been informed of this issue and has repair all holes they know of. However, researchers believe this issue might be exploitable in many other cloud computing services. These general types of attacks that were used against amazon are called XML signature wrapping attacks and cross site scripting attacks. Amazon has announced that these exploits only exist in a very small percent of AWS authentications that are not using SSL endpoints. Amazon posted a list of strategies for remaining secure; one of which being multi-factor authentication. With cloud computing’s rapidly growing popularity it is a good thing researchers are finding and resolving these general exploits in cloud architecture.
