Does anyone know which attacks were carried out via relays running on cloud

The only one I remember was the "One cell is enough" [0] tagging attack in
2009, but IIRC, their malicious/colluding exit was run on PlanetLab (also, via
the nature of the attack, it probably wouldn't have caused any harm to real
users).  Were there any others?
