Recently, with increasing use of smartphones, the security threats also have increased rapidly. Especially, the compromised smartphone is very dangerous because it could be exploited in a DDOS attacks such as cyberterrorism as well as in the leakage of personal information. However, most bot detection mechanisms are still unsuitable for smartphone with its lower computing capability and limited battery capacity because they incur additional computational overheads or require pre-defined signatures. In this paper, we present an efficient bot detection mechanism in smartphones. Our mechanism detects effectively bots in outgoing traffic by using a correlation between user events and network traffic. We have implemented its prototype in Android smartphone and measured its performance. The evaluation results show that our mechanism provides low overhead to detect bots in smartphones.
