abstract = {Developing mobile applications is a challenging business:
developers need to support multiple platforms and, at the
same time, need to cope with limited resources, as the
revenue generated by an average app is rather small. This
results in an increasing use of cross-platform development
frameworks that allow developing an app once and offering
it on multiple mobile platforms such as Android, iOS, or
Apache Cordova is a popular framework for developing
multi-platform apps. Cordova combines HTML5 and JavaScript
with native application code. Combining web and native
technologies creates new security challenges as, e.g., an
XSS attacker becomes more powerful.
In this paper, we present a novel approach for statically
analysing the foreign language calls. We evaluate our
approach by analysing the top Cordova apps from Google
Play. Moreover, we report on the current state of the
overall quality and security of Cordova apps. },
