drozer – Security Testing Framework for Android

Unquestionably we can say that Android is one the leading mobile operating system, but nobody is secure; so Android also has vulnerabilities and there are methods to exploit them. Since there are vulnerabilities, so we have a reason to study and fix them. Drozer can make your life easy because it is a framework to test the security of Android OS.

drozer (formerly Mercury) is the leading security testing framework for Android.

drozer allows you to search for security vulnerabilities in apps and
devices by assuming the role of an app and interacting with the Dalvik
VM, other apps’ IPC endpoints and the underlying OS.

drozer provides tools to help you use, share and understand public
Android exploits. It helps you to deploy a drozer Agent to a device
through exploitation or social engineering. Using weasel (MWR’s advanced
exploitation payload) drozer is able to maximise the permissions
available to it by installing a full agent, injecting a limited agent
into a running process, or connecting a reverse shell to act as a Remote
Access Tool (RAT).
drozer is open source software, maintained by MWR InfoSecurity, and can be downloaded from:

Faster Android Security Assessments

drozer helps to reduce the time taken for Android security assessments by automating the tedious and time-consuming.

  • Discover and interact with the attack surface exposed by Android apps.
  • Execute dynamic Java-code on a device, to avoid the need to compile and install small test scripts.

Test against Real Android Devices

drozer runs both in Android emulators and on real devices. It does not require USB
debugging or other development features to be enabled; so you can
perform assessments on devices in their production state to get better
results.

Automate and Extend

drozer can be easily extended with additional modules to find, test
and exploit other weaknesses; this, combined with scripting
possibilities, helps you to automate regression testing for security
issues.

Test your Exposure to Public Exploits

drozer provides point-and-go implementations of many public Android
exploits. You can use these to identify vulnerable devices in your
organisation, and to understand the risk that these pose.
