Cloud customers were hit with 681 million cyberattacks last year, according to analysts at cloud security provider Armor, which recently analyzed cloud attacks detected in 2018.

The most common cloud-focused threats leveraged known software vulnerabilities, involved brute-force and/or stolen credentials, targeted the Internet of Things (IoT), or aimed for Web applications with SQL injection, cross-site scripting, cross-site request forgery attacks, or remote file inclusion. Researchers based the list on volume; these are not the most advanced or lethal cloud attacks.

Any cybercriminal can rent an exploit kit containing attack tools for a reasonable amount of cash.
