Android botnets are a formidable threat to the security and privacy of millions of users worldwide. In a new paper, Aditya K Sood and Rohit Bansal discuss an inherent security flaw present in the C&C panel of the Nexus Android botnet, which has been exploited to gather internal details of the C&C design. In addition, they present a model of mobile AppInjects, to uncover how overlay attacks are performed on compromised Android devices to hijack user accounts and steal credentials.
