Clouds for Hit-and-Run Wireless Attacks
Most cloud security research focuses on its protection from security threats. In this paper, we studied how to use cloud infrastructure to carry out Hit-and-Run type of attacks to a wireless networks. We demonstrate how to use cloud to gain access and control to routers while hiding attacker identities. We illustrate such an attack on a private wireless network using a cloud virtual environment. Besides identifying the vulnerabilities of wireless routers, we studied the damages can be done through such attacks and propose some solutions to detect and protect against this kind of hit-and-run attacks.
