[BruCON 2023] The Mobile Malware Maze

In this keynote presentation, we will delve into the fascinating evolution of mobile malware over the past 15 years.

Exploring the realms of Symbian OS and Java ME, we will showcase early instances of mobile malware and their impact. With the advent of Android, a relatively young platform of only a decade, we will trace the emergence and transformation of mobile threats.

We will discuss the shifting trends in mobile malware, such as the decline of trojan dialers, and shed light on the current stage where packed and obfuscated malware dominate.
