Mobile phones are almost a necessity nowadays but their usage and applications are not risk free with main concern on security.
With conventional mobile application security, numerous issues arise repeatedly in security assessment, vulnerability and penetration test reports. Types of issues extent from sensitive data leaks to critical code or command execution vulnerabilities. Android applications are also affected by these flaws, so it is company responsibility not to underestimate the security of the applications implementing best practices and reviewing, testing and auditing the code.
Starting from the OWASP Top 10 Mobile Risks list, this analysis will cover some of the security issues typically found during Android application security test cycles, focusing on file storage and data protection, network communication and lack of binary protection.
Following an overview of the Android internals and how an application is packaged, we will present a series of practical examples to demonstrate how the security of an application can be compromised using specific tools and techniques to reserve engineering and disassemble its code. Last, we will demonstrate a real code injection within an existing application.
