In recent years, botnet has become one of the most serious security threats to Internet. With the rapid development of mobile network and the popularity of smartphones, botnet began to spread to mobile platform. In order to counter mobile botnet, it is meaningful to study its constructive mechanism and reproduce it. In the past studies, researchers have designed several kinds of mobile botnet model based on various communication channels, such as SMS, Bluetooth, etc. This paper proposed a general mobile botnet model based on open service, and verified its feasibility by implementing it on Android platform. This paper also analyzed this model, and then proposed potential defense strategy in terms of its characteristic, which may provide reliable theoretical and technical support for future prevention and privacy protection.
