Recently, mobile malware on Android platform is proliferating. Android malware makes a malicious code installed on mobile devices, using SMS, and then send an attacker the user personal information stored on the mobile devices, such as phone numbers and credit card details. But almost Android anti-virus has high false-positive detection of Android malware. In order to overcome the limitations for collecting and analyzing Android malware, we propose a new method that it is collected by existing method. We propose a framework to overcome the limitation by anti-virus.
