Understanding Android Malware through Targeted Fuzzing

Research collaboration between CYSEC and Fraunhofer SIT is presented at ICSE 2017

CYSEC researchers will present a novel technique to understand Android malware at the International Conference on Software engineering (ICSE) 2017, the premier conference in software engineering. The technique, called FuzzDroid, combines systematic fuzz testing with a set of static and dynamic program analyses. FuzzDroid helped to expose otherwise hidden malicious behavior in over 150 recent malware apps that could not be analyzed by existing approaches.

The project is a collaboration between the Fraunhofer Institute for Secure Information Technology (SIT) and CYSEC-PI Michael Pradel's group at TU Darmstadt.

ICSE 2017 is held in Buenos Aires, Argentina from May 20 to 28, 2017.
