Android is the most used operating system (OS) by mobile devices. Since applications uploaded to Google Play and other stores are not analyzed comprehensively, it is not known whether the applications are malicious software or not. Therefore, there is an urgent need to analyze these applications regarding malicious software. Moreover, mobile devices have limited resources to analyze the applications. In this study, a malicious detection system named “Web-Based Android Malicious Software Detection and Classification System” was developed. The system is based on client-server architecture, static analysis and web-scraping methods. The proposed system overcomes the resource restriction issue, as well as providing third-party service support by means of client-server architecture. Based on the performance evaluation conducted in this research, the developed system’s success rate is 97.62% on benign and malicious datasets. View Full-Text
