Submission + - Android Botnet Infects 1 Million Plus Phones (threatpost.com)

Trailrunner7 writes: Up to a million Android users in China could be part of a large mobile botnet according to research unveiled by Kingsoft Security, a Hong Kong-based security company, this week.

The botnet has spread across phones running the Android operating system via Android.Troj.mdk, a Trojan that researchers said exists in upwards of 7,000 applications available in the Google Play marketplace, including the popular Temple Run and Fishing Joy games.
