Trueseeing is a non-decompiling Android application vulnerability scanner.

Project description

trueseeing is a fast, accurate and resillient vulnerabilities scanner for Android apps. It operates on Android Packaging File (APK) and outputs a comprehensive report in HTML. It doesn’t matter if the APK is obfuscated or not.


Currently trueseeing can detect the following class of vulnerabilities:

  • Improper Platform Usage (M1)
    • Debuggable
    • Inadvent publishing of Activities, Services, ContentProviders, BroadcastReceivers
  • Insecure Data (M2)
    • Backupable (i.e. suspectible to the backup attack)
    • Insecure file permissions
    • Logging
  • Insecure Commnications (M3)
    • Lack of pinning (i.e. suspictible to the TLS interception attack)
    • Use of cleartext HTTP
    • Tamperable WebViews
  • Insufficient Cryptography (M5)
    • Hardcoded passphrase/secret keys
    • Vernum ciphers with static keys
    • Use of the ECB mode
  • Client Code Quality Issues (M7)
    • Reflectable WebViews (i.e. XSSs in such views should be escalatable to remote code executions via JS reflection)
    • Usage of insecure policy on mixed contents
  • Code Tampering (M8)
    • Hardcoded certificates
  • Reverse Engineering (M9)
    • Lack of obfuscation


The following command line is sufficient to scan a APK (target.apk):

$ trueseeing /path/to/target.apk > report.html
