Stealth Bomb


A stealth bomb is a piece of malicious code that is disguised as something else. It may be received as a 'normal' e-mail, or perhaps as an amusing screen saver. Stealth bombs deliver their 'payload' surreptitiously and the results can be both damaging to your system and also highly embarrassing.

See Malicious Code for more detailed information.
