Abstract

Android malware is increasing in spread and complexity. Advanced obfuscation, emulation detection, delayed payload activation or dynamic code loading are some of the techniques employed by the current malware to hinder the use of reverse engineering techniques and anti-malware tools. This growing complexity is particularly noticeable in the evolution of different strands of the same malware family. Over the years, these families mature to become more effective by incorporating new and enhanced techniques. In this paper, we focus on a particular Android ransomware family named Jisut, and perform a thorough technical analysis. We also provide a detailed overall perspective, which will hopefully help to create new tools and techniques to tackle more effectively the threat posed by ransomware.
