Why I am scared of cloud computing

When I see amazonaws.com addresses in the ip addresses that denyhost has flagged as doing an ssh password attack on my servers.... that scares the absolutely crap out of me. Anyone else seeing that?

Can I track back from an ip address and figure out what image was being run? And who is responble not only for the host but for building the image?   Who the hell is taking responsibility for making sure crap that runs on ec2 is actually secure?
