The Intrusion Program is designed to allow entry into a target computer system. [1]

Description (Specifications)[edit]

While most Offensive programs are intended to allow the use of weapons mounted on a ship to damage or destroy enemy vessels during physical warfare, the Intrusion Program is used in Information Warfare to penetrate the enemy's computer and observe its operation or degrade or subvert its performance.

Software Authorship: Various requirements exist for individual characters producing existing or new programs. Such a course can save money, but may have some pitfalls. Program generation is explained elsewhere. [8]
