What is a Logic Bomb?
The term logic bomb refers to the malware also called slag code which gets activated by a response to an event. For instance, launching an application or when a specific date/time is reached – it triggers the logic bomb malware to start running on a computer. Online fraudsters make use of the logic bomb malware in a variety of ways. Attackers usually embed the code within a bogus application, or Trojan horse, and will automatically execute whenever the user launches the fake software. Online criminals may try deploying a mixture of spyware and logic bombs in an attempt to steal a user’s identity. For instance, spyware is used by online fraudsters to covertly install a keylogger on a computer. The keylogger captures the keystrokes of the user and sends it back to the implanter/remote attacker, the information are usually the usernames and passwords.
