Cloud computing is frequently used due to its low cost and flexibility, but it also raises security issues to cloud service providers and customers. Cache attacks are a critical security risk in cloud computing. Cache attacks use weaknesses in cloud servers' cache memory to steal sensitive information, interrupt services, and decrease cloud performance. This study examines the many forms of cache attacks, their possible effects, and known mitigation measures. The study approach includes a review of current methods and their effectiveness in combating cache attack. The report also suggests future research topics for developing more effective and economical methods for preventing cache breaches in cloud computing systems.
