The Current State of Security, Privacy and Attack Surface on Android: Scanning Apps for Secrets and More – Wave 8

Our research shows that secret leakage is still an issue developers must be addressed with secure development practices. We recommend that developers ensure that any cloud computing solutions they integrate into their apps are correctly configured to avoid the leakage of sensitive information and prevent threats for both the organization and end-users. We recommend that end-users pay attention to what permissions their favourite apps require for everyday usage and check if they are even needed to combat predatory practices.
