Seems that it not an easy road for Android in the future as Symantec has found out that more than 100, 000 Android devices have been affected by malware botnet especially those in China. According to Symantec, malware botnet allow “The number of infected devices able to generate revenue on any given day ranged from 10,000 to 30,000, enough to potentially net the botmaster millions of dollars annually if infection rates are sustained .”
Though the botnet is only reported to be affecting those in China, it must also be considered that the lack of security could possibly make a way for other botmasters to take advantage of this.
According to Symantec, the programs that were trojanized to hide the malware botnet did not come from the Android Market. So those who have been downloading apps from the Market should not have to worry.
