To foster research on Android malware and to enable a comparison of
different detection approaches, we make the datasets from our project
Drebin publicy available.
The dataset contains 5,560 applications from 179 different malware families. The
samples have been collected in the period of August 2010 to October 2012 and were made available to us by the MobileSandbox project.
You can find more details on the dataset in the paper.
We are happy to share our malware dataset. However, in order to
prevent any misuse, we kindly ask you to send us a mail to
stating your identity and research scope.
We will then send you the link where you can download the malware samples along with the login credentials.
