Cloud computing is a new computing model that allows providers to deliver services on demand by means of virtualization. One of the main concerns in cloud computing is security. In particular, the authors describe some attacks in the form of misuse patterns, where a misuse pattern describes how an attack is performed from the point of view of the attacker. Specially, they describe three misuse patterns: Resource Usage Monitoring Inference, Malicious Virtual Machine Creation, and Malicious Virtual Machine Migration Process.
