They're here...
I was waiting for this to come up.  The pure accessibility of ocmputing power now available thanks to cloud means we are going to see way more powerful attacks, since bots and malware can be run easily from any remote server hosted in a cloud environment.  Even worse, if these are part of a public cloud, such as a multi-tenant environment, the risk of infecting across the hypervisor is even more real.  This just reminds us of the risks that come from cloud, not just in securing our own information, but how it can be used as a threat itself.
