Protecting user privacy in virtualised cloud environments is an increasing concern for both users and providers. This presentation argues that the privacy claim of any technology that uses different encryption keys to isolate hypervisor administrators from guest VMs cannot be guaranteed. This will be demonstrated via a new instantiation of a Blinded Random Block Corruption Attack. Under the same scenario assumptions that the per-VM keying method addresses, the attack allows a cloud provider administrator to use the capabilities of a (trusted) hypervisor in order to login to a guest VM (besides the encrypted memory). This completely compromises the user's data privacy. Furthermore, we also demonstrate that even non-Boolean values can be effectively targeted by attackers, forcing the elevation of privileges of a process running in a protected VM as demonstration.
