Huge Android botnet up and running in China

Written by Fudzilla staff



More than a million devices affected


Insecurity experts are kindly asking Android users in China to stop downloading crap, as the country is now home to the biggest Android botnet ever.

Researchers claim the botnet is spreading through a Trojan that is affecting upwards of 7,000 apps, including Temple Run and Fishing Joy games. It appears the Trojan is spreading over unlicensed third-party app stores, which are quite big in some parts of the world.

However, warnings about third-party app stores are falling on deaf ears and the Trojan, dubbed Android.Troj.mdk, is still going strong.
