"Mobile phones are becoming important part of the users' day-to-day life specially the smart phones, since they are involved in keeping in touch with friends and family, doing business, accessing the internet and other activities. Now-a-days, almost all the smart phones have features like camera and touch screen. These features may lead attacks on their smart phones. Modern smart phone platforms let users customize their device via third-party applications found on ""app stores"" or traditional websites. Application provenance is a problem so users are constantly at risk of installing malicious apps that steal personal data or gain root access to their device."
