I have little security knowledge and looking at image hosting for a startup:
Considering S3 doesn't allow you to set a cap on costs, how likely is it that someone could flood S3 with requests for my files and run up a considerable amount of money?
Say I have a 2MB document, is it possible for someone to send millions of requests to that get file?
From what I understand the costs for an end user requesting a file is:
GET and all other Requests † $0.01 per 10,000 requests
Data Transfer Pricing:
Up to 10 TB / month $0.120 per GB
Does that pricing mean this is a non-issue?
Does Amazon S3 have security measures in place to stop something like that happening?
