snydeq writes “Security researchers have spotted the Zeus botnet running an unauthorized command and control center on Amazon’s EC2 cloud computing infrastructure. This marks the first time Amazon Web Services’ cloud infrastructure has been used for this type of illegal activity, according to threat researcher Don DeBolt. The hackers got onto Amazon’s infrastructure by hacking into a Web site hosted on Amazon’s servers and then secretly installing their command and control infrastructure.”
