BBC News - Google disputes Android botnet spam claim: "On 4 July, Microsoft researcher Terry Zink claimed to have discovered evidence of Android phones being enrolled into a botnet. Botnets typically use infected PCs as spam generators but Mr Zink said he found evidence that Android smartphones were being used in the same way. In a statement, Google said there was no evidence to support Mr Zink's claim. The search giant's investigation suggested the junk messages originated on PCs but the spammers sending them formatted them to look like they came from Android smartphones. "Our analysis suggests that spammers are using infected computers and a fake mobile signature to try to bypass anti-spam mechanisms in the email platform they're using," said Google. By taking this step, said Google, the junk mail would have a better chance of defeating spam filters and ensure that messages reached inboxes. If the spam were coming from a botnet made up of Android phones, it would be the first ever. Mobile security specialist Lookout also questioned Mr Zink's initial claim. . . ."
