研究成果: Article


This work develops a system called CLAP that detects and classifies "potentially unwanted applications" (PUAs) such as adware or remote monitoring tools. Our approach leverages DNS queries made by apps. Using a large sample of Android apps from third-party marketplaces, we first reveal that DNS queries can provide useful information for detection and classification of PUAs. We then show that existing DNS blacklists are limited when performing these tasks. Finally, we demonstrate that the CLAP system performs with high accuracy.
