Search tool accesses firms' documents in the cloud
A website created by anonymous hackers has been launched that allows anyone to search for sensitive data stored in the cloud. Buckhacker is a tool that trawls servers at Amazon Web Services, a popular cloud computing platform. The name comes from the fact that AWS Simple Storage Servers are known as "Buckets" - this is the part of AWS that Buckhacker accesses. He pointed to one example that appeared to be of encryption keys for a cloud customer at a different cloud computing service. "The search engine is the first easy to access ways of looking inside them... companies are losing control of their data in the cloud."
Make a complaint about Amazon by viewing their customer service contacts.
