to increase, security researchers are turning their attention to
the mobile platform.
One such researcher is Neil Daswani of Dasient. Daswani and his
team scanned over 10,000 Android apps using behavioral analysis
tools. The analysis was designed to identify if the apps posed any
security risks. Dasawni is presenting his finding during a research
talk at the Black Hat conference this week.
Daswani noted that out of the 10,000 apps, his team found that
over 800 were leaking some kind of private information.
