Today, NowSecure is releasing to the public an open source Android Vulnerability Test Suite (Android VTS). Ryan Welton (@fuzion24) has worked particularly hard to produce a tool that can be used by researchers and users alike to determine the vulnerability status of their devices.

In the spirit of open data collection, and with the help of the Android CTS, we are opening Android VTS to the public and the mobile security research community with the hope that together we can take an accurate pulse on the state of Android security.

In time, NowSecureUs research team will add patches to the VTS to introduce an opt-in module for anonymized results to be shared to a central server for the purpose of open security research.

With this release we provide the code and compiled APK to begin checking the vulnerabilities immediately. Pull requests welcome!
