This blog post lists the main cloud-native threats, that is those cyber events exploiting the cloud in one or more stage of the kill chain. I have collected the same information during 2020 and 2021.

The campaigns are classified in four categories: Delivery and Exploitation (the cloud service is exploited to deliver a malware strain or a phishing page), Actions on Objective (the cloud service is exploited to steal data, or launch other attacks), Command and Control (the cloud service is exploited as a command and control infrastructure), and Data Exfiltration (the cloud service is used as a drop zone for the exfiltrated data).

Below you will find an interactive timeline and some statistics on the collected sample.

Enjoy the interactive timeline, and thanks for sharing it, and supporting my work in spreading the risk awareness across the community. Also, don’t forget to follow @paulsparrows on Twitter, or even connect on Linkedin, for the latest updates.
