HACKERS CAN SLIP INVISIBLE MALWARE INTO ’BARE METAL’ CLOUD COMPUTERS

”When organizations use public cloud infrastructure, they’re essentially borrowing equipment, like buying it used off of Ebay, and it can be pre-infected before they start using it,”

That cloud sanitization problem, Eclypsium’s researchers were clear to point out, doesn’t effect all cloud servers. A typical cloud computing setup generates every customer’s computer as a so-called virtual machine, a kind of sealed aquarium within the computer isolated from the server’s actual hardware and other customers’ virtual machines on the same box.

But everyone from Amazon to Oracle to Rackspace also offers so-called bare metal servers, in which a customer rents and fully controls an entire computer in an attempt to improve performance or, ironically, security.
