First excuse my lack of knowledge in anything Android related.
I wanted to ask if there is any possibility that an un-supervised Android phone, older Samsung model, running Android 4.2.2, act as a rogue spam server on the network.
Reason I'm asking this is because I have a fairly secure environment at work, both server side and client side. Recently the IP has been blacklisted by SPAM trap servers, and I had no real explanation as to why it happened.
So I asked myself what changed? The network functioned like this for years and no such thing happened till now. As it happens somebody with an older phone logged in on the wifi network on the same day with the blacklist. So I though hmmm weird coincidence.
Bottom line: Can an Android phone act as a rogue SPAM sending server? And if so how can I track down the issue? Is there a complete AV solution for Android that can detect such malware?
