Abstract: With the technological advancements in recent years, information technology has been vital all over the world. Nowadays, it is getting very difficult to look for an individual who do not own a smartphone. Due to the overreliance on information technology, we have to be conscious about the security issues which comes along with it. No wireless mobile device is completely safe. They are vulnerable to security breaches such as data theft and malicious attacks by viruses. Once infected these mobile devices may be involved in many kinds of online criminal activity, including identity theft, unsolicited commercial SMS messages, scams and massive coordinated attacks. In this project, we will discuss and find ways to make android devices more secure. Until recently, mobile networks have been relatively isolated from the Internet, so there has been little need to protect them against Botnets. Mobile networks are now well integrated with the internet, so threats on the internet, such as Botnets, have started to migrate to mobile networks. This paper studies the potential threat of Botnets based on mobile networks, and proposes the use of computational intelligence techniques to detect Botnets. We then simulate mobile Bot detection by detecting anomalies using an artificial immune system implementation on an Android device.
