Free Android malware analysis tool
Posted on 18 March 2013.
Bluebox Labs announced Dexter, a free tool to help researchers and enterprise security teams analyze applications for malware and vulnerabilities.


The Dexter platform provides software architecture information presented through a web-based user interface.

Key features:
  • A free interactive Android software analysis environment
  • Collaboration features to help development teams identify vulnerabilities that can be exploited by malware.
Analysis capabilities:
  • A heuristic result enrichment
  • A flexible tagging system
  • An API for automated processing/extending.
“The increasing popularity of the Android platform has resulted in an explosion of applications, but with shortened development cycles, many are released without proper security analysis – this often leads to undetected malware making it to market along with the app,“ said Jeff Forristal, Chief Scientist and lead researcher, Bluebox Labs. “Our mission at Bluebox Labs is to understand the most critical mobile threats and vulnerabilities. Through Dexter we are able to share this understanding with the community, giving developers greater insight into their applications.”

Dexter delivers unprecedented visualization into applications with extensive graphing capabilities, as well as automated analysis on the application code, resolving cross-references of methods to strings and methods.
