Botnet Discovered on Android

The first botnet on Android devices have now been discovered, and the number of malware-apps is soaring.

Reports about malware on Android devices have been many. But now this blog is reporting that for the first time found evidence of a botnet on Android. It writes our site.

Terry Zink, as is Microsoft employee, is the man who has discovered a spam-wave with the message “Late from Yahoo! Mail on Android”. The message has the header “Android Mobile”, suggesting the spam messages are sent from Android devices.

Zinc has messed a little in the matter, and also writes that the ip addresses are pointing at countries such as Russia, Ukraine, Indonesia, Thailand and Venezuela. This is the country where the proportion of malware infections typically also is higher than that of the richest industrial countries, most often due to users download software from dubious sources.

Antivirus company Trend Micro tells also that the number of malware applications for Android has risen from 10,000 to 20,000 in a month.

Usually it is the false applications, but there are also found 17 malware apps in the official Google Play Big.
