Summary : We propose Drebin, a lightweight method for detection of Android malware that operates directly on the smartphone. Drebin performs a broad static analysis of Android applications and automatically identifies typical patterns of malicious activities that can be presented to the user. Empirically, Drebin outperforms related approaches and enables detecting 94% of the malware in a large dataset with few false alarms.
