Botnet in Amazon’s EC2 Cloud

I just came across an old news that came out when I was on vacation. Nonetheless, it was surprising to me.  Back in December 2009 some researchers found the Zeus botnet running on Amazon’s EC2 cloud. This is a password stealing botnet that was linked to over $100M in bank fraud in 2008. Obviously, hackers are not lagging behind the cutting edge technology.
