Now this is interesting. Something called the Cyber Defense Agency is warning US military, government, security and critical infrastructure agencies against using commercial software. The threat comes from something known as a life-cycle attack, which occurs when one line of code buried deep in the program is rigged to open vulnerabilities within the software, thus exposing the software and the company to external threats.
It is suggested that software built by less expensive overseas labour is exposed to several threats, including said insertion of malicious code.
