Malware for smartphones is rapidly spreading out. This paper proposes a method for detecting malware based on three metrics, which evaluate: the occurrences of a specific subset of system calls, a weighted sum of a subset of permissions that the application required, and a set of combinations of permissions. The experimentation carried out suggests that these metrics are promising in detecting malware, but further improvements are needed to increase the quality of detection.
