Full Summary:

With the help of a $450,000 NSF grant, assistant professors Patrick Traynor and Jonathon Giffin will focus on detecting and repairing mobile botnet attacks, rather than preventing them. "Since mobile phones typically lack security features found on desktop computers, such as antivirus software, we need to accept that the mobile devices will ultimately be successfully attacked," Giffin said. "Therefore our research focus is to develop effective attack recovery strategies." Source:
