Re: based off Androrat
That's a very important point, Robert. Charlie Miller and Jon Oberheide did some research on bouncer: https://jon.oberheide.org/files/summercon12-bouncer.pdf Unfortunatley, we are seeing more and more malware using their findings. Fortunately, this can be used to scan for suspicious candidates.

Re: based off Androrat
One thing I feel is prudent to mention here is that Google only scans apps on the Play store for Malware when they are first uploaded.  An existing app on your phone could be updated with this malware and through the course of a normal update you could be infected.  This was an issue with Chrome extensions a few months back and Google supposedly changed their scanning practice, but I never heard of a change to their Play store scanning practices.

It should also be mentioned that a major portion of the code and its overall basis was actually taken from the open source project androrat. https://github.com/DesignativeDave/androrat
