Logic Bomb definition in Cybersecurity

A Logic Bomb is a piece of code intentionally inserted into a software system that will set off a malicious function when specified conditions are met. Unlike viruses, logic bombs do not replicate themselves but can be just as destructive.

How to Protect Your Network against Logic Bombs

  1. Regularly conduct code reviews and software audits to detect any unauthorized or suspicious code insertions.
  2. Implement strict access controls and separation of duties to minimize the risk of malicious code insertion by insiders.
