Logic Bombs

January 21, 2008

A Logic Bomb is a type of malicious program that, although it can be running on a system for a long time, won’t activate until a specific trigger, such as a specific date or the number of times a program is started, is set off. Logic bombs can be highly destructive, depending on the payload. The damage done by a logic bomb can range from changing bytes of data on your disk to rendering your entire hard drive unreadable.
