Trend Micro researchers recently discovered new Android malware that's partly under the command and control of a blog.

"The ANDROIDOS_ANSERVER.A malware is disguised as an e-book reader offered on a third-party Chinese app store," writes The Register's Richard Chirgwin. "It uses two command and control servers, one of them served out of a blog with encrypted posts. Posts to the blog identify the URL of the primary C&C server."

"This presumably gives the malware’s makers a handy way to move their C&C server around to avoid detection," Chirgwin writes.
