A Pragmatic Way of Logic Bomb Attack Detection Methodology


Objective: This study proposed and developed a frame work to detect the insider and outsider logic bomb attack in a system. Method/Analysis: On fulfillment of certain conditions, ongoing system may suffer from various irregularities including system integrity failure, auto file deletion, auto updating, buffer overflow, memory synchronization failure etc. It is difficult to realize the existence of Logic Bomb attack. Malicious codes are hidden inside the main file or embedded in hardware. Even such codes can be injected remotely. Evidence generated from the studies show that detection and diffusion of Logic Bomb attack in advance is difficult. Even testing of Logic Bomb attack that is embedded in hardware need well equipped testing devices. However, systematic approach of observation and analysis help to detect logic bomb attack. In the proposed methodology, a framework has been generated in which it incorporates various factors of irregularities from system based observations and data extracted from firewall. Findings: As Logic Bomb attack does not have any stereotype approach. Thus it creates more complexity. It needs minute observations. Proposed method has been implemented for both inside and outside logic bomb attack and results are compared. Novelty/Improvement: Depending on types of consequence as well as observations, proposed methodology can be extended further.
