Let's be honest - we all love the cloud, and even if we say we don't trust it, we use it all the time. (By some accounts, the UK has about 30% more mobile phones than people.) The problem is that cybercrooks love the cloud too, for all the same reasons - it's cheap, convenient, scalable and, for them at least, a really big place to hide. What's worse is that the crooks can build what amounts to a "private cloud" of their own by stealing space and time on our equipment. This talk will explain how the crooks turn other people's computers into what amounts to a "free" content delivery network for cybercrime ...and how to stop them! You will learn: • Why the crooks love the cloud as much as we do. • How crooks can simply and amplify attacks via the cloud. • How crooks turn your devices into their "free" cloud servers. • What you can do to stop them!
