Abstract: Android is currently one of the most popular operating system for smart phone.The permission system is one of main protection for the users when using android applications. Although it restricts certain process by warn the user during the installation of the application, it does not identify and warn the user about the potential danger of approving certain group of permission together. The protection level also does not really identify the danger of the permission as it is set by the developer. In this project, a fire brigade attack is implementing by using a Trojan application where the actual application uses similar group of permission as the malicious process is possible. The implementation shows that the current android permission system is still flaw and improvement such as identify the threat can by certain combination and set default protection level can be done to prevent this flaw to be exploited.
