ABSTRACT
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.
