At VB2016, Android Security hosted a 'small talk' on how we as an industry can come together to share threat info more effectively with the community. Android has set a goal to be transparent by publishing more data about PHA in the Android ecosystem. Today, we will present the trends we've been seeing in malware, and describe how we're going to publish that data. We will also talk about how AVs and MTP vendors can share details about new malware families with Android that can be incorporated into our public dashboard. In exchange, we will cite the researchers that contributed and we will share what we know about the family to inform the AV publication.
