Android Security is a long term topic for any kind of Android users. Several years ago Google announced the Android Security Bulletins that tries to provide frequently security updates for Android Software components like middleware, kernel and device drivers.
The “Android Exploits” project is intended to track the frequency of security updates and will tell customers if their device is outdated. It will list known exploits that are executable on their device and warn the user if their device can be compromised.
Ranking and Statistics
Another intension of this app is to show how Manufacturers care about their device security on a long run. The “Android Exploits” app offers a lot of statistics and data analyses which contains rankings, historical data, security scores and much more.
The security score is designed to give the user some kind of rating about his device security. In general this does not mean that a device with a good score is unable to be compromised. But it means that devices with lower score are more easy to attack because they didn’t receive necessary updates, are to old or have a wrong device configuration.
“Android Exploits” collects all necessary data and transfers them to the server backend. The server backend has an internal score of every incidence and will combine them to the final score. The user can see this score on the main page and can also look at scores of other devices, manufacturers or software components.
