Crowd-sourcing as a system attack mechanism

"Serf and Turf: Crowdturfing for Fun and Profit"

http://j.mp/I2jMEx  (www2012.org [PDF])

   "Popular Internet services in recent years have shown that
    remarkable things can be achieved by harnessing the power of the
    masses using crowd-sourcing systems. However, crowd-sourcing
    systems can also pose a real challenge to existing security
    mechanisms deployed to protect Internet services. Many of these
    security techniques rely on the assumption that malicious activity
    is generated automatically by automated programs."
