Nowadays, leakage of Android private information security is protected by application audit mechanism in formal application store and the Android mobile security mechanism. But because of insufficient of these two security, mechanism leakage of privacy incidents happened frequently. In this paper, we get the sensitive resources permission mapping table and sends the data permission mapping table according to the relationship between resources and permission and characteristics of sensitive resources. The judging rules and the detection process for the malicious application of privacy leakage are developed from these two mapping tables. Finally, 884application samples are tested and the experiment result demonstrates the advantages and disadvantages of the method.
