We address the problem of centralized detection of a binary event in the presence of falsifiable sensor nodes (SNs) (i.e., controlled by an attacker) for a bandwidth-constrained under-attack spatially uncorrelated distributed wireless sensor network (WSN). The SNs send their quantized test statistics over orthogonal channels to the fusion center (FC), which linearly combines them to reach a final decision. First (considering that the FC and the attacker do not act strategically), we derive (i) the FC optimal weight combining; (ii) the optimal SN to FC transmit power, and (iii) the test statistic quantization bits that maximize the probability of detection (Pd). We also derive an expression for the attacker strategy that causes the maximum possible FC degradation. But in these expressions, both the optimum FC strategy and the attacker strategy require a
