Vodafone distributes Mariposa botnet
From Vodafone distributes Mariposa botnet | Panda Research Blog
via Vodafone HTC Magic shipped with Conficker, Mariposa malware | Zero Day | ZDNet.com
Today one of our colleagues received a brand new Vodafone HTC Magic with Google’s Android OS. The interesting thing is that when she plugged the phone to her PC via USB her Panda Cloud Antivirus went off, detecting both an autorun.inf and autorun.exe as malicious. A quick look into the phone quickly revealed it was infected and spreading the infection to any and all PCs that the phone would be plugged into. Interestingly enough, the Mariposa bot is not the only malware I found on the Vodafone HTC Magic phone. There’s also a Confiker and a Lineage password stealing malware.
