Mobile Application Penetration Testing

Mobile Application Penetration Testing

Overview

Today, it’s virtually impossible to go anywhere without running into a mobile device of some kind. Whether you have one with you or you see someone else tapping away, these mobile devices have become ubiquitous. Android, iOS, and Windows Mobile devices are at the forefront of mobile technology. With 3G, 4G, and wireless networks, users can gain access to the internet, interact with apps, listen to music, and watch video from virtually any location on the map. With the iPhone and iPad applications, Objective C is the primary programming language. Android devices generally use Linux-based language along with Java. Apple iOS and Android devices are essentially small, but powerful computers that can run almost anything a computer or web-based application can.

Issues

Many mobile apps use web-based functions that leave them open to Permissions Vulnerabilities(API, Web Services), Cross-Site Scripting (XSS), Cross Site Forgery (CSRF), and so on. By that same token, iOS devices are occasionally susceptible to buffer overflow attacks. It’s certainly possible for attackers to decompile code to pinpoint security flaws and other weaknesses.
