How to break android apps for fun and profit - part 2

In this ruptured episode of the Exploring Information Security podcast, Bill Sempf joins me to discuss how to break android apps.Bill (@sempf) is an application security architect who loves the grind of security. He recent spoke at DerbyCon on "Breaking android app for fun and profit." Watching the talk prompted me to invite Bill on the show to dive in a little more. What I like about the talk is that it's almost entirely a demo that walks through the steps of setting up the test environment. You can find more content from Bill at his website and the OWASP .NET project.In this episode we discuss:Other tools to use for testing mobile applicationsOWASP Mobile Top TenMethodology for testingTypes of vulnerabilities Bill has foundMore resources:ADB - The Android DebuggerAPKTOOL - Reverse engineering toolGenyMotion - Virtualization toolVirtuous Ten - GUI for app reversing and modificationQark - Android application scannerOWASP Top Ten Mobile Security RisksOWAPS Android Testing Cheat Sheet
