We've all read the horror stories: a new virus is crawling through the third-party stores, aiming to steal your personal information, identity, and first born child. More often than not, this type of malicious app is made possible because of one of the various root vulnerabilities that have been discovered throughout the various versions of Android.
X-Ray is a new app that lets you see exactly how vulnerable your device is by scanning it against several of these exploits, including RageAgainstTheCage, Gingerbreak, Mempodroid, Levitator, and a few more.
It's extremely easy to use: simply install it and run a scan. It will run through each exploit in a matter of minutes and display whether or not the device is vulnerable

Ultimately, it's good to know what exploits, if any, your device is vulnerable to. The more you know, the easier it is to keep your device protected.
X-Ray is completely free (but not in the Play Store)

here is download lin

X-Ray author here, happy to answer any questions folks have!

---------- Post added at 05:13 PM ---------- Previous post was at 05:08 PM ----------

For reference, Duo Security is the company behind X-Ray: duosecurity.com

We've do a fair bit of Android security research, if that helps lend to the credibility of the app. blog.duosecurity.com/category/android/

I figured out this thread subscription crud (/me is xda n00b), so I'll hopefully be able to reply to any questions.

EDIT: Gah, I can't post links since my account is too new. Just copy-paste if you're interested.

i installed this app on my phone. All it does is turns my phone off when i press scan.

I am currently on android 4.0.3 UHLPS (ICS) with Siyah Kernal 3.4. Is this unique to my phone ?

I'll download and install. Let you know how it goes I'm using my Xperia Play R800x on official CM9 RC2 with the official kernel. Hope I can help.

As was expected, no vulnerabilities. The CM team is awesome

See on CM foruns that a user running CM9 has mempodroid vulnerability, i think this will occurs to all users that are using this custom rom, right?

What we need to worry about Memopdroid Vulnerability on CM9 Stable release?

Thank you in advance

Thanks Rep, great to have, Xoom is OK but the D3 is vunerable w/Gingerbreak. No problem,I'll take care of that. Your XRay showed this so to all this is an item worth having.

Re: download: possible so that visitors to your site main page click on download the apk downloads? why have them type in xray.io/dl?

anyway, downloaded and installed on HTC one X running ARHD 9.1.
Nothing found!

You might want to check for motofail, the debugfs vulnerability (it wouldn't surprise me if it affects every device) as well as the Galaxy vulnerabilities that I plan to announce on the Full Disclosure mailing list on Wednesday night (I told Samsung I would give them two weeks head start, and reported the vulnerabilities to them).
