A sophisticated piece of Android malware that has botnet-like
capabilities was discovered attached to a number of games on a
third-party Android market.
An advanced new Android Trojan has been found in the wild and it
displays botnet-like capabilities, said Lookout Mobile Security on Dec.
Named Geinimi, it is "the most sophisticated Android malware" so far,
but its impact is currently limited as the infected apps are available
only on Chinese Android app markets, Lookout said in its warning. That.s
not to say it couldn.t be packaged into other geographic regions, but
that it hasn.t been done yet.
"We have not seen any applications compromised by the Geinimi Trojan in
the official Google Android Market," according to the Lookout blog.
