Android 恶意样本数据集汇总


List some android malware datasets in academic research.Some of them are still up to date.

  1. 我这里有Drebin的数据集,以及VirusTotal(2018.3)的android恶意样本,约15GB。VirusTotal的数据集在Google云盘上,Drebin数据集我上传了2560个到OneDrive(由于空间受限)。需要的可联系我本人(分享Google云盘需要提供你的gmail)。
  2. 历史的数据集例如Drebin、Genome 等可以联系导师,然后发邮件联系他们获取,一些不再共享的也可以联系一些已经拥有数据集的大学和机构,基本上国内知名的大学都会有这些数据集。
  3. VirusTotal的样本可以自己去申请。分为API和恶意文件夹。前者可以等到详细的样本检测报告,后者的话主要是大量的恶意样本。但是VirusTotal样本申请需要填写大量的信息,例如身份、研究的内容、学校和导师的资料等。
  4. Contagio样本的密码,直接联系博主本人即可。
  5. 所有样本仅可用于学术研究,并且请指出样本来源。

VirusTotal Mobile Apps Samples

VirusTotal: Analyze suspicious files and URLs to detect types of malware including viruses, worms, and trojans.

Description: VirusTotal can also be used through a smartphone app. VirusTotal is about empowering the Community in order to build tools that will make the Internet a safer place, as such, we like to credit and feature Community-developed goodies that help the antivirus industry in receiving more files in order to have more visibility into threats.

Android Malware Genome Project

(2015/12/21) Due to limited resources and the situation that students involving in this project have graduated, we decide to stop the efforts of malware dataset sharing.

Description: In this project, we focus on the Android platform and aim to systematize or characterize existing Android malware. Particularly, with more than one year effort, we have managed to collect more than 1,200 malware samples that cover the majority of existing Android malware families, ranging from their debut in August 2010 to recent ones in October 2011.

Sample Volume: more than 1,200

Collected Time: 2010.8 - 2011.10

Way to get: ask someone who had already get this dataset. following universities, research labs and companies

Kharon Malware Dataset

Description: The Kharon dataset is a collection of malware totally reversed and documented. This dataset has been constructed to help us to evaluate our research experiments. Its construction has required a huge amount of work to understand the malicous code, trigger it and then construct the documentation. This dataset is now available for research purpose, we hope it will help you to lead your own experiments.
