    The NotCompatible mobile malware has reached a new level of sophistication, according to a new report from San Francisco-based mobile security company Lookout, Inc. The malware was first detected in 2012, but the newly discovered variant, NotCompatible.C, is the most complex mobile malware the company has ever seen. NotCompatible's writers have rebuilt the entire back end to make it particularly resistant to malware researchers trying to take them down, with multiple servers in different geographies a separate node authentication process, and encryption of all their traffic.
