In this paper, we investigated the definition of privacy, privacy abuse behaviours, and the privacy abuse in Android systems, which may be very useful for identifying the malicious apps from 'normal' apps. We also investigated the injection technology, service binding, and service proxy in Android system, which are widely used by normal apps to steal privacy information. A real-time monitoring system (app) is developed on Android system to monitor potential privacy data abuse. The app is able to monitor permission requests for all installed apps as well as analyse the potential privacy abuse behaviors.
