Abstract
The popularity of Android applications have grown dramatically in the last few years. Android applications run on mobile devices that have limited memory resources. Although Android has its own memory manager with garbage collection support, many applications currently suffer from memory leak vulnerabilities. These applications may crash due to out of memory error while running, and this will lead a bad user experience. The target of our work is static object reference analysis, then we can roughly find whether an application has memory leak bugs, explain the reason of a memory leak problem. After that, we can discovery the location of leak bugs and solve them finally.
