Since sensor applications are implemented in embedded computer systems, cyber attacks that compromise regular computer systems via exploiting memory-related vulnerabilities present similar threats to sensor networks. However, the paper shows that memory fault attacks in sensors are not the same as in regular computers due to sensor’s hardware and software architecture. In contrast to worm attacks, mal-code carried by exploiting packets cannot be executed in sensors built upon Harvard… CONTINUE READING
