Cloud computing is a platform that provides state of the art information technology resources which are cheaper, scalable and easy to manage. But the cloud properties such as high scalability, quick deployment, dynamic resource range, high computing power, high bandwidth, etc. are exploited by cyber criminals as the tools for introducing new cybercrimes. These cybercrimes include DDoS as a service, Botnet as a service, Malware as a service, password cracking, BotClouds, C&C servers, Warez as a service, etc.
