Abstract: Mobile devices are overgrowing; nowadays people are using mobile devices for different activities. Over the years malware attacks on mobile devices are increasing, the primary intention of the attacker is to steal sensitive information and turn the infected mobile device into a member of the botnet. We studied differences between traditional botnets and mobile botnets, also analyzed different mobile botnet attacks. Mobile malware applications spread through Cross-site Scripting vulnerabilities in trusted websites. Developed a mobile malware which can perform Denial-of-service attacks and used this malware to test and review mobile botnet attacks. We also studied solutions to prevent these mobile botnet attacks.
