Massive DDoS attacks on websites and company networks are mostly associated with IoT devices. These next-gen techs serve as an easy to source inventory for the hackers when creating gigantic botnets. But in the recent past, a more common breed of devices popularized by the name Android has become an apparently soft target.
Google recently deleted around 300 apps from the official Play Store which were used to create what is being called one of the first Android botnets. Known by the name WireX, it included around 120,000 IP addresses across 100 different countries.
