Evaluating Android Antimalware Against Transformation Attacks
Mobile malware threats (e.g., on Android) have recently become a real concern. In this paper, the authors evaluate the state of the art commercial mobile antimalware products for Android and test how resistant they are against various common obfuscation techniques (even with known malware). Such an evaluation is important for not only measuring the available defense against mobile malware threats but also proposing effective, next generation solutions. They developed DroidChameleon, a systematic framework with various transformation techniques and used it for their study.
