Security researchers say they have discovered a huge botnet running on the smartphones of more than a million unsuspecting mobile users in China.
The devices had been infected by a Trojan-based attack first discovered in 2011, news agency Xinhua reported.
The botnet can allow the smartphones to be hijacked remotely and potentially used for fraudulent purposes.
