In the last years, mobile malware has become a serious threat to thousands of users. The massive increase in the use of smartphones with the Android platform makes the need for malware analysis of this platform a critical issue. It’s necessary though, to understand how the Android Malware works, and also to find out how to defend this platform from malicious attacks. In this project, we use the reverse engineering as a tool to understand the structure and functionality of the malware. We will define the characteristics of the android malware through the objectives that it was created for. As an example, we present the results of reverse engineering of NotCompatible because the malware has the functionality of infected 20,000 devices for day and attack the android markets over and over in the last three years, and Arspam, which was designed for political purposes to recognize the orientation of the prayers. Key Terms ⎯ Android Malware, Malicious Code, Mobile Malware, Smartphone Security.
