Cloud computing is cutting-edge platform in this information age, where organizations are shifting their business due to its elasticity, ubiquity, cost-effectiveness. Unfortunately the cyber criminals has used these characteristics for the criminal activities and victimizing multiple users at the same time, by their single exploitation which was impossible in before.
