Deep Malware Scanner (pilot)

Scan your devices for malicious apps. Malware is identified using Symantec Mobile Insight’s latest behavior similarity-based technology.

QuadRooter Vulnerability (CVE-2016-2503, CVE-2016-2504, CVE-2016-2059, CVE-2016-5340)

A malicious app can exploit vulnerabilities to gain root privilege to the user's device.

Towelroot Vulnerability (CVE-2014-3153)

A malicious app can exploit this vulnerability to root the user device.

Mediaserver Vulnerability (CVE-2015-6616)

A malicious app can exploit this vulnerability to execute arbitrary code or cause deny of service, compromising the device security.

Keyring Vulnerability (CVE-2016-0728)

Zipfury Path Traversal Vulnerability (CVE-2015-8780)

A malicious party can craft a special backup archive, which when restored to a vulnerable device, allows the malicious party to place files in arbitrary locations on the device, including privileged system locations.

A remotely exploitable software defect that affects the Android operating system, it allows an attacker to perform arbitrary operations on the victim device through remote code execution and privilege elevation.


The Lock Screen Bypass vulnerability allows anybody with physical access to the device to potentially unlock it without knowing the correct password.

BlueBorne Vulnerability

The BlueBorne vulnerability can be exploited to allow arbitrary code execution or cause denial of service, compromising the security of the device.

DirtyCow Vulnerability

The DirtyCow vulnerability can be exploited to allow local users to gain privileges by leveraging incorrect handling of a copy-on-write (COW) feature to write to a read-only memory mapping.

KRACK Vulnerability

KRACK (Key Reinstallation attaCKs, KRACKs) is a serious weakness in the WPA2 protocol. This vulnerability can be exploited to steal sensitive information such as username, credit card number, passwords, emails, photos, and so on.
