"InsecureBank", Vulnerable Andriod application developed by Paladion, is made for security enthusiasts and developers to learn the android insecurities by testing this vulnerable application.
BENGALURU, APRIL 18, 2012: Paladion has recently launched Application Security tools for mobile enthusiasts. The tools, ‘InsecureBank’
Paladion's Vulnerable Andriod application named "InsecureBank"
o Information Sniffing due to Unencrypted Transport medium
o Sensitive information disclosure via Property Files
o Sensitive information disclosure via SD card storage
o Sensitive information disclosure via SQLite DB
o Sensitive information disclosure via Device and Application Logs
In addition, Paladion's Mobile Security Team has developed an automation script which is helpful in quick static analysis of Android Vulnerabilities. The script is a batch file, which prompts the user to provide the path of the android application code to be analysed. The script has detection parameters pre-configured in it which run over the android application code. The result is a list of text files - one each for different vulnerability. These text files are the primary source of vulnerability identification. Sometimes it may not directly flag off vulnerability but may act as the pointer from where to start with. This script is very useful in case of bigger applications.
List of key Checks that that the Script would be testing for:
o Code to check for presence of HTML Sensitive Information
o Code to check for insecure usage of SharedPreferences
o Code to check for possible TapJacking attack
o Code to check usage of external storage card for storing information
o Code to check for possible scripting javscript injection
