Virtual application stores for mobile platforms contain many malign and benign applications that exhibit security issues, such as the leaking of sensitive data. In recent years, researchers have proposed a myriad of techniques and tools to detect such issues automatically. However, it is unclear how these approaches perform compared to each other. The tools are often no longer available, thus comparing different approaches is almost infeasible.
