What is the Geinimi Trojan?
The Geinimi Trojan is a malware application that hackers can use to take over your Android smartphone. The basic idea is that a hacker will download a legitimate application from Android Market, such as a game, repackage it together with a malicious program, and then redistribute it through a third party Android applications vendor. When a user downloads the infected application package, the Geinimi Trojan takes over the phone and can make calls, place texts, or do any of a number of different things. It is possible that this kind of malware for smartphones could be used to create a Botnet.1
