  • Details


  • Explaination of the reputation method
    Match type
    It considers the number of apps uploaded on the marketplace, grouping by similarity to seed applications. An app equal or very similar to a seed app contributes negatively to the score.
    Advertising
    It considers all applications on the marketplaces and marks them to adware or malware. The higher the number of malware applications, the lower the score.
    Apps lifecycle
    It considers how much malicious apps remain online, evaluating in this way the reaction time of the marketplace.
    Behaviour
    It analyses the behaviour of the marketplace with respect to uploaded apps. A marketplace which doesn't delete apps flagged as malicious by antiviruses has the lowest score. A marketplace which delete apps before antiviruses detection has the highest score.
    Finally, reputation is weighted on popularity of the marketplace, computed a priori evaluating the number of downloads on most popular apps.
