Best Android Tools For Security Audit and Hacking

Best Android Tools For Security Audit and Hacking

Security researchers have long maintained that malware is a problem on Android, the Google operating system that’s on 80% of the world’s smartphones. In extreme cases, hackers with malicious intent can do much more than send premium text messages.  In this post, we will see various apps for web application penetration testing, network penetration testing, sniffing, networking hacking and Android apps penetration testing.

Droid Sheep:

DroidSheep is a simple Android tool for web session hijacking (sidejacking). It listens for HTTP packets sent via a wireless (802.11) network connection and extracts the session id from these packets in order to reuse them.

DroidSheep can capture sessions using the libpcap library and supports: OPEN Networks WEP encrypted networks WPA and WPA2 encrypted networks (PSK only)

DroidSheep is not intended to steal identities or endamage anybody, but to show the weak security of non-ssl webservices

Android Device Testing Framework

The Android Device Testing Framework (“dtf”) is a data collection and analysis framework to help individuals answer the question: “Where are the vulnerabilities on this mobile device?” Dtf provides a modular approach and built-in APIs that allows testers to quickly create scripts to interact with their Android devices. The default download of dtf comes with multiple modules that allow testers to obtain information from their Android device, process this information into databases, and then start searching for vulnerabilities (all without requiring root privileges). These modules help you focus on changes made to AOSP components such as applications, frameworks, system services, as well as lower-level components such as binaries, libraries, and device drivers. In addition, you’ll be able to analyze new functionality implemented by the OEMs and other parties to find vulnerabilities.

drozer (formerly Mercury) is the leading security testing framework for Android.

drozer allows you to search for security vulnerabilities in apps and devices by assuming the role of an app and interacting with the Dalvik VM, other apps’ IPC endpoints and the underlying OS.

drozer provides tools to help you use, share and understand public Android exploits. It helps you to deploy a drozer Agent to a device through exploitation or social engineering. Using weasel (MWR’s advanced exploitation payload) drozer is able to maximise the permissions available to it by installing a full agent, injecting a limited agent into a running process, or connecting a reverse shell to act as a Remote Access Tool (RAT).

Have you ever looked at your Android applications and wondered if they are watching you as well? Whether it’s a bandwidth-hogging app, aggressive adware or even malware, it would be interesting to know if they are doing more than what they are supposed to and if your personal information is exposed. Is there really a way to automatically evaluate all your apps – even hundreds of them – to harvest their behavioral data, analyze their run pattern, and at the same time provide an interface to facilitate a vast majority of evolving security tests with most practical solutions?

Android Security Evaluation Framework (ASEF) performs this analysis while alerting you about other possible issues. It will make you aware of unusual activities of your apps, will expose vulnerable components and help narrow down suspicious apps for further manual research. ASEF is an Open Source tool for scanning Android Devices for security evaluation. Users will gain access to security aspects of android apps by using this tool with its default settings
