Cyber attacks or hacks have been increasing in scale & frequency in the past month with a number over very high profile attacks affecting a number of UK & US Internationally renowned technology companies, technology giants & Internet Service Providers.

Some of the servers used in the PlayStation Network hack, a year ago, were hosted by Amazon AWS network, in particular, the Elastic Compute Cloud or EC2 network.

Cloud infrastructure has been targetted before & will continue to be attacked for a very long time.
