Abstract

In this paper, we propose an automated, scalable, and dynamic analysis framework incorporating static techniques to detect the analysis environment aware Android malware and Resource Hogger apps. The proposed framework can automatically trigger malicious execution by sending simulated User-Interface (UI) events and broadcasts. The Proposed approach is and platform invarient for different Android OS versions.
