Cloud Computing Security

Q: Cloud Computing Security

Hello,
 
 I am currently doing a project on cloud computing security. I am trying argue about how secure the cloud is and am doing researcher to that end. I am reaching out to any cloud security professionals or anyone that has any information on cloud security. If you just want to give your opinion on cloud security, that is fine too. I want to know what people think about the security of the cloud.

Now I have read a bit about this and I don't like the general sound of what is said in tis article I have just got Cloud haters: You too will be assimilated | ZDNet

Because it sounds like it will include me and just about everyone whether you like it or not - this also sounds like deprivation of liberty to me unless I have got it very wrong and I didn't like the threatening tone throughout the article.

Another thing is at the bottom there is a linked article to Oracle and cloud computing and I am wondering now if perhaps this is where Java and applications like it are falling to pieces or so it would appear to me.

I just don't want to entrust my personal stuff to some big brother type setup - or is this meant to be an early April fools joke??

Hi folks. Recently I've been talking with an online cloud solution company about possible partnering, or becoming a re-seller ofor cloud storage. Just curious if anyone has a good amount of experience with backing up data to cloud servers. I'm assuming that even a 500gb drive could take a week to upload. Does it actually take that long? Is there any particular factors that can speed up the process besides compression? Just interested to hear anyone's input on the entire subject. Thanks

hi guys, my first post on here, just wondering, will windows 8 be the first windows cloud-computing OS? isn't that how the next generation OS will be? considering by the time microsoft will produce the first build of windows 8, chrome OS might be already out there next year probably, then microsoft might be interested to add cloud-computing features to windows 8 to make sure they are competetive, just some thoughts..

A:cloud computing

I think the key here is to understand that according to Ballmer they aren't going to build a whole new OS.





"Let me comment, though, about our own situation. What we really do understand is that the model fo the future brings together the best of today's rich client Windows-style applications and some of the things that people consider the best of the web. ... So as we talk about where we're going, we don't need a new operating system. What we need to do is evolve Windows, Windows applications, IE, the way IE works in totality with Windows, and how we build applications like Office, like the stuff we showed here, and we need to make sure we can bring our customers and partners with us."



Like you said akramh MS will 'add' cloud computing features to the next version of windows, not build a whole new 'cloud OS'

Hello , I am new on this forum

So, I have study project about cloud computing/ cluster whatever. For now I am using MaaS with juju. But I faced problem with some programs because there are only for windows. And now I am thinking to find another software to own computing cluster/cloud. I want to check power consumption on computers(I am using 30 old HP Compaq dc7100 with Pentium 4 HT) on specific programs. Check for example if Open Office use less power than MS Office.

What I'm trying to achieve here is to have a sort of Cloud OS or somehow to have a Server Receive inputs and send end result video back in real time. The speeds I'm talking about here should be around 1ms. An example of this service is Onlive. They take inputs from users many miles away, process them on their powerful Graphics intensive game servers and then send the video back, all in a short period of time and with minimal latency issues. That is what I'm trying to achieve in short but instead of games, I want to be using Professional software Such as Adobe Aftereffects or 3DSMAX.

Keep in mind that, I will only be using such a server at home, never outside my network, (because of regular consumer upload speeds) so the only bottleneck here might be wireless and Router QoS.

Some solutions I have tried is VMware ESXI, I guess that software sounds a bit crazy as I'm assuming their intentions for creating such software is for such things that are more enterprise oriented. IE: File Servers, Web Servers, etc.
At a consumer level, I've also tried VMworkstation, They have a function that supports remote Streaming and client inputs in the way that I originally described. Problem is, they don't support Direct X or any sound.
Again, I guess their intention for such a function isn't for what I'm intending to do. ( It never hurts to try right? )

So in conclusion, is there any way to stream such a OS like Win 7 or Linux Via home network while ... Read more

This is a question to the community of IT consultants who have spend a long time buying hardware for your customers' networks. Hardware-as-a-service is being described as being Cloud Computing, although it's evolved into something a lot more complex. Anyway, no time for rhetorical questions here. I am curious to understand how you view cloud computing as an alternative to buying equipment, either to deploy new services or users, or to upgrade existing infrastructure. Are you still buying from traditional vendors such as Dell, HP / Compaq, Acer, and the likes? Or have you been seriously considering Cloud Hosting / Storage / VDI?

I am keen to understand the barriers to Cloud Computing, so thanks for any input.

I've just started playing around with W8 CP. I'm trying to hard to give it a fair go and to even force myself to like it long enough to do it justice, but I fear I'm losing the battle.

One of the things that I'm curious about is the integration of various technologies.

I don't use cloud computing. Never will (at least not voluntarily or knowingly)
I don't use Windows Live, MSN, or any Windows Live APPs. I have a Windows Live ID for logging into my Technet subscription and that is all.

When installing W8 these technologies seem to be a big part of W8. I know I can "force it to use a" local account, but as I play around I find that there are ties to these technologies everywhere.

Am I missing something? If I continue to stay away from these technologies am I going to find lots of features of Windows 8 won't work?

Also the "Metro" does NOT have what I use a lot, like "Control Panel"!

Microsoft working on Cloud Shell, a 'lightweight Windows version for modern computing world'

Last week, details emerged of Microsoft's plans to develop a single, unified, 'adaptive shell' for Windows 10. Known as the 'Composable Shell', or CSHELL, the company's efforts were said to be focused on establishing a universal Windows 10 version with a standardized framework to scale and adapt the OS to any type of device, display size or user experience, including smartphones, PCs, tablets, consoles, large touchscreens, and more.

Today, Petri reported that Microsoft is working on a new shell for Windows known as 'Cloud Shell'. According to internal documentation referred to in that report, Cloud Shell is described as a "lightweight version of Windows designed for the modern computing world." It also hints at plans to introduce the Cloud Shell sometime in 2017 - but little else is known about the new shell besides that.

Cloud Shell is said to be connected, in some way, with the Windows Store and Universal Windows Platform app framework, and the report speculates that it may also be related to Microsoft's plans to bring the full version of Windows 10 to mobile devices with ARM-based processors, which it announced in December.

However, the cloud nomenclature, and the reference to this being a 'lightweight' version of Windows could hint at a 'thin client'-style approach, in which the Windows 10 s... Read more

3. Downloaded and ran r-kill. It got rid of the dialog boxes for Open Cloud
4. Ran Malwarebytes antimalware. Tried to run Quick scan and Full scan. Both failed after a few seconds and then cannot open Malwarebytes anymore.
It shows Error message reading: Windows cannot access the specified device, path or file. You may not have the appropriate permissions to access the item.
If i resintall the program, it will open again and then fail the same way.

I'm a computer consultant and three of my clients have been infected with this virus in the last 2 weeks. One was so bad that I had to run a recovery back to the origin of the computer. On the other two computers I had removed Open Cloud from startup and then all the files it created manually. I was then able to run Malwarebytes on this computer and it found the malware and others. (I wasn't able to run any scans on the second computer, including McAfee.) But then I had further problems - either the computer was excruciatingly slow, or as on this computer, when you click on All Programs, only McAfee is listed! I also get some startup errors that I didn't get before. Then I found the post about TDSSKiller. I ran it and RKill (Explore.exe) on both computers and nothing changed. I gave up on the other computer and did a full recovery. I'm hoping I don't have to do that on this one. There are lots of files to backup and several programs to reinstall. I've attached the files you need to analyze the problem. Thanks, Leslie

Don't believe anyone who says cloud computing is just a buzzword, doomed to become the next failed, overhyped industry former technology darling. Cloud computing is already here, and if you don't learn to secure it, you won't have much of a job to cling to in the not-too-distant future.

Your Security? Not Our Problem, Say Cloud Providers.
So, apparently from a cloud provider perspective, it is the cloud computing users' fault that cloud providers aren't making cloud security a high priority. If their customers don't demand it, cloud providers say they aren't going to provide it.

But this belief seems to be undercut by the result of the survey: "... [while] 69 percent of cloud providers see the cloud user as most responsible for security, ... only 35 percent of users believe they are most responsible for ensuring security."

This leads to a situation, the survey notes, where "... neither the company that provides the services nor the company that uses cloud computing seem willing to assume responsibility for security in the cloud."

Hackers must be laughing all the way to the bank. However, as a customer of those companies using cloud computing services, I don't like particularly being put at risk because of the discord.

Hi there, I am based in Australia, and work with a contractor in the Philippines, she is in her home office. We are both working on stand alone PC's connected to our own private internet. We access cloud software to work on the same file. I believe the cloud software is secure. What I was wondering was is there any cyber risk involved if my contractor is working with confidential information in Phillippines on a secure cloud platform ie xero? If not, is there any online system (network or other) that will make the data flow more secure? I need to be 100% sure that my clients data would be secure, and I am just not sure how to do this in a cost effective way. Any suggestions?? Many thanks, Jodie.

I looked Open Cloud Security up on bleepingcomputer.com and I tried to follow the instructions. I'm using Windows XP, and i'm not savvy with regedit so I tried the antimalware route via safe mode. When I tried to open any form of safe mode i got the blue screen of death with some sort of memory dump notice at the bottom. So i started in my regular mode, used RKill (renamed iexplorer) to stop the rogue processes which allowed me to run antimalwarebytes. It took forever, and finally logged some things as killed, but open cloud security was still there. So in a fit of desperation I took to deleting what appeared to be folders which were definately not there before the infections. Files named with loooong numbers, as well as the files associated with open cloud security. Several clone shortcuts were found, but no program files. I went to the registry and deleted the only file i could find in the registry that has been linked to this virus. Then I restored last known good settings, but now I can't open a single program. The notice says to restore the file association in folder options in the control panel. But I don't even know how to do that. Does anyone know what happened? I'm not backed up in any way, and I will lose things which i would be very sad to lose, but I'm not against starting from scratch. It doesn't look like I have the virus anymore, but regardless, my computer is completely devastated. Is it possible that I deleted something that... Read more

I have tried everything to get rid of Open Cloud Security, and am having no luck.I got rid of the annoying popups, but some random exe file (3571092410.exe) continues to start every time except when I launch Safe Mode WITH Alternate Shell/Command Prompt.The random exe is blocking programs such as my Anti-Virus, Anti-Spyware, Regedit, etc. from executing as needed. I also suspect it may be spoofing certain programs, b/c when I run rkill it immediately closes but then opens again and finds nothing to kill here.Please help!Hi there,I am working with a nasty little virus.More details at this thread:http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic421299.htmlBascially, I have tried everything. The DDS log is attached. Although I can find't the attached.txt that is suppose to be zipped. The random exe files in the root are renamed versions of rkill. However, I can't explain the random ones in the Windows directory.Gmer throws an error that it found system modifications and wants to run a full scan. But doing so causes it to crash. Image attached.Please help. Thanks.Merged topics then posts. ~ OB

A:Open Cloud Security Not Removing

Ok... I think I finally got rid entirely rid of it. I kind of winged it myself without any 3rd party tools, but have notes if you would like me to share them.

Can I get confirmation that my system is ENTIRELY clean based off these logs? I mean it runs fine now, but I want to be sure some I didn't leave some key logger or something hiding in there...

I have 2 concerns:
1) The GMER log mentions something about the file system and keyboard driver.
2) I see "Error 1012: There was an error while attempting to read the local hosts file" in Component Services (although I have no problems access the web).

Thanks go to this forum for all the tips and strategies!

Hi, I've had the open cloud security problem for about 2 weeks now, at first it kept popping up over and over again telling me I had all kinds of threats etc., I Googled it and followed the instructions for removal with the malwarebytes' malware removal kit, and it would find some infected files, and then the scan would stop just before it finished saying it experienced some kind of error. I also ran AVG and found some infected files, put them in the virus vault, and then emptied the vault. I put the open cloud security link from my desktop into the trash can and then emptied it, and the pop-ups about me being infected stopped, but I'm assuming it's still on here because I didn't really do anything, so I came on here, I read the preparation guide for removing the malware, and I downloaded the recommended files and ran the scans, and I'm attaching them below. I'm not very good with any of this, and I would really appreciate any help with removing it. Thank you.

Cloud data security still a challenge;
Despite the continued importance of cloud computing resources to organisations, companies are not adopting appropriate governance and security measures to protect sensitive data in the cloud.
These are just a few findings a Ponemon Institute study titled ?The 2016 Global Cloud Data Security Study,? commissioned by Gemalto. The study surveyed more than 3 400 IT and IT security practitioners worldwide to gain a better understanding of key trends in data governance and security practices for cloud-based services.

According to 73% of respondents, cloud-based services and platforms are considered important to their organisation?s operations and 81% said they will be more so over the next two years. In fact, 36% of respondents said their companies? total IT and data processing needs were met using cloud resources today and that they expected this to increase to 45% over the next two years.
Although cloud-based resources are becoming more important to companies? IT operations and business strategies, 54% of respondents did not agree their companies have a proactive approach to managing security and complying with privacy and data protection regulations in cloud environments. This is despite the fact that 65% of respondents said their organisations are committed to protecting confidential or sensitive information in the cloud. Furthermore, 56% did not agree their organisation is careful about sharing sensitive information in the cl... Read more

A:Cloud data security still a challenge

Thanks for sharing

As a paranoid penguin, I never use cloud data storage
(I must also admit that I have no need to share data with other devices by cloud )

For some companies, I think it's safer to backup their data on their own "cloud".

Hi everyone,

Is there an affordable Cloud managed security solution?

Currently, I am trialing Kaspersky Security Cloud - I can manage 20 licenses directly via My Kaspersky account for Mac and Windows. But it is 99 a year.

Is there any other solution that is cheaper/better?

I am looking for a solution to manage the IT system of my charity.

Cheers for any help,

Fred

Hello,
I am working on a use case where we are using Oracle Fusion Cloud which is hosting few of ERP apps. These apps are currently authenticated via Okta.
We are planning to deploy Microsoft Cloud App Security (CASB) in the environment. Now, we know that MCAS does not have API connector for Oracle Fusion Cloud, so we wanted to leverage Session Policies via Conditional Access App Control.
Is it possible, and if yes, then do we need to change the federation of the apps currently hosted on Oracle Fusion Cloud from Okta to Azure AD?

So today Norton Security picked up something weird while my computer was idle. 
 
Infected file: BIT1D2E.tmp
Location: C:\Windows\Temp\BIT1D2E.tmp
Threat name: Suspicious.Cloud.9.B
Threat type: Heuristic virus
 
 
That's really all I have, but I saw it again in the same folder(how the heck did it get redownloaded?) a few minutes later and uploaded it to VirusTotal:

Hello,
 

Please download Rkill to your Desktop.
There are 2 different versions. If one of them won't run then download and try to run the other one.
You only need to get one of these to run, not all of them. You may get warnings from your antivirus about this tool, ignore them or shutdown your antivirus.rKill.exe: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/download/rkill/dl/10/iExplore.exe (renamed rKill.exe): http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/download/rkill/dl/11/
 
§  Double-click on the Rkill desktop icon to run the tool.
§  If using Windows Vista, 7, 8 or 10 right-click on it and choose Run As Administrator.
§  A black DOS box will briefly flash and then disappear. This is normal and indicates the tool ran successfully.
§  If not, delete the file, then download and use the one provided in Link 2.
§  Do not reboot until instructed.
§  If the tool does not run from any of the links provided, please let me know.
If normal mode still doesn't work, run the tool from Safe Mode.
When the scan is done Notepad will open with rKill log.
Post it in your next reply.
NOTE. rKill.txt log will also be present on your desktop.
