The flaw reportedly affects Amazon EC2, Microsoft Azure, and Google Compute Engine. "Amazon sent a notice about a major security update and EC2 is scheduled to reboot Friday," said Chris Morales, head of security analytics at Vectra. "If these reboots are related to the flaw, it demonstrates how far-reaching the impact is."
