1. A non-transitory machine-readable storage medium, comprising executable instructions that, when executed by a processor, facilitate performance of operations, comprising:monitoring, within a cellular network, a data flow of a mobile communication device;
determining whether the data flow corresponds to a defined bot traffic flow that is outside of a defined group of data flows that have been observed on the cellular network, wherein the data flow corresponding to the defined bot traffic flow indicates that the mobile communication device comprises a malicious software application that has generated a bot traffic flow that has been determined to be outside of a defined observed data flow of the mobile communication device; and
in response to the data flow being determined to correspond to the defined bot traffic flow, sending, to the mobile communication device, traffic profile data that is indicative of the defined bot traffic flow to facilitate a removal, by the mobile communication device, of a data packet that has been generated by the malicious software application of the mobile communication device and that has not been sent from the mobile communication device.
