I am currently working on a project which will identify malware that are residing on a device.
My aim is to make a hash-based detection of Android malware on a device by only accessing the ADB port of the device and getting the SHA-256 (MD5, SHA1, etc could also work) of the
base.apk which resides in the app's data directory.
Is there any way to get the hash of an
.apk file that is installed on a device using ADB, but without installing another app?
