The authors present DNADroid, a tool that detects android application copying, or \"Cloning\", by robustly computing the similarity between two applications. DNADroid achieves this by comparing program dependency graphs between methods in candidate applications. Using DNADroid, they found at least 141 applications that have been the victims of cloning, some as many as seven times. DNADroid has a very low false positive rate - they manually confirmed that all the applications detected are indeed clones by either visual or behavioral similarity.
