Be careful using Android apps...

Quote:Researchers from The Ohio State University, New York University, and CISPA Helmholtz Center for Information Security have conducted a detailed analysis of various mobile apps. According to the detailed shared in their research paper, thousands of Android apps exist online that contain backdoors.


In brief, they developed a tool named “InputScope” to unveil vulnerabilities and hidden behaviours of mobile applications. The tool analyzes the apps’ input validation behavior to uncover these hidden traits.

Using this tool the researchers analyzed 150,000 Android apps from various app stores. These included the top 100,000 apps from Google Play Store, top 20,000 apps from an outside app store, and 30,000 pre-installed Samsung apps. They then found thousands of these Android apps to have backdoors.
