The advent of cloud computing provides good opportunities for both good and malicious use. Cloud computing is at its infancy stage and its security is still an open research issue. Malicious users take advantage of the current lack of advanced security mechanisms in the cloud. Cloud computing paradigm enables users to access computing resources without necessarily owning physical infrastructures. It is therefore easy for an attacker who intends to perform malicious activities in the cloud to create a remotely hosted desktop, perform their activities and then destroy the desktop later.
