DOPA: Detecting Open Ports in Android OS
2018 IEEE Conference on Communications and Network Security (CNS)
In smartphones, open ports can be exploited by malicious applications to allow attackers to remotely control user's device. In this work, we perform an attack that opens a port on an Android device to remotely connect to this port and access various phone features without requesting any permission from the user. Additionally, we develop and implement a tool called, Detecting Open Ports in Android operating system (DOPA), that detects open ports and reports them to the user.
