Android botnet could pose threat to corporate networks & WordPress sites | Computerworld

Computerworld writes that the ‘NotCompatible’ Android Trojan is one of the oldest botnets running on Android hardware. Distributed as a drive-by download from compromised websites. Computerworld continues that the variant NoteCompatible.C botnet is using encrypted traffic to send it’s command out and has been used to spam, bulk purchase from various live event ticketing sites and brute-force it’s way into WordPress sites.

As with anything security related having a strong foundation in place such as Sucuri’s Website Firewall is a good choice in attempting to keep the bad guys out.
