Head in the Clouds

An interesting post over here describes a problem where click fraud propagators are using the Amazon cloud to perpetrate click fraud on AdWords and AdSense.

I wonder how long it will be before there is a SaaS version of "Defraud Your Competitors", where you can just punch in your domain as a whitelist and a list of keywords you'd like your competitors defrauded in. It would make it quite easy to distribute the load across multiple AWS servers, and obviously the pricing model would be easy to compute as you can figure out how much it costs you in network resources (billed via AWS) to execute the attack and mark it up appropriately.

I'm guessing this exists already, let us know where and we'd love to see how they do it.
