With the efficient Internet access and increasing powerful computing capabilities of mobile device, the mobile botnet has becoming an emerging threat in the mobile Internet. In this paper, we propose a novel mobile botnet using the cloud platform consisting with multiple message push servers. The path delay is measured as the metrics to classify bots into different groups. A weighted round-robin algorithm is implemented to select a push server to disseminate commands to each bot groups. With the push-styled command and control mechanism, the botmaster can enhance botnets stealthiness and controllability. Experimental results show that the multiple-push-styled botnet is stealthy and controllable in quickly delivering a command to all bots.
