Detectors for Intent ICC Security Vulnerability with Android IDE

With the time-to-market pressures for mobile app development is increasing, its development cycle is getting shorter and developers have little to no time for security remediation. Many mobile app developers overlook the security quality of the software in the development cycle. Mobile app flaws and security defects could open doors for hackers to easily attack mobile apps. Early elimination of possible security vulnerability will help to secure our software, and mitigate the security risk threats from potential malicious attacking. However, many developers lack awareness of the importance of security vulnerability and the necessary secure software development knowledge and skills. An effective security vulnerability detecting tools integrated with IDE would be very beneficial for software developers. In this paper we explore the Android common ICC vulnerability and present ICC intent flaw detectors with open source FindSecurityBugs integrated in Android Studio IDE.
