V10 - Malicious




Ensure that code satisfies the following high level requirements: • Malicious activity is handled securely and properly to not affect the rest of the application. • Does not have time bombs or other time-based attacks. • Does not "phone home" to malicious or unauthorized destinations. • Does not have back doors, Easter eggs, salami attacks, rootkits, or unauthorized code that can be controlled by an attacker. Finding malicious code is proof of the negative, which is impossible to completely validate. Best efforts should be undertaken to ensure that the code has no inherent malicious code or unwanted functionality.
