Android Permission Architecture: Invisible Security Threats

Summary: Android Permission Architecture has been exploited by the Hackers to steal data from the Smartphones and even turn Android Phones into Smart Phones. We will demonstrate an Android Malware/Spy application which uses similar permissions as those used by apps like whatsapp, wechat or Facebook.
