7. Student Testimonials

Aditya Gupta, the author, has already conducted this course at conferences and private in-person trainings around the world! Here is what his students have to say about the course:

“I have known Aditya now for around 3 years. I recently got a chance to attend his live “Android Exploitation training” at one of the popular security conferences. I was looking for a course to get started with Android Security and Exploitation for one of my upcoming projects. The training did a really nice job in getting everyone started, as well as giving hands-on experience with real world applications, which I think sets this training as one of the best I have attended. After the 2-days of intense Android Exploitation, and identifying vulnerabilities in different kind of android apps, I felt confident enough to start push my security mobile project to the next level.”

– Marius Corîci,
Founder, CTF365 


“I and my team had an insightful training on pentesting of android apps conducted by Aditya. The training covered various aspects of vulnerabilities in Android apps that developers can often miss to handle. Really good amount of practical and hands-on sessions focusing on reverse engineering and using various tools to exploit the vulnerabilities that existed on popular android apps. Altogether a great training put together, with the content giving a really nice idea on improving android app security.”


– Gautam,
Samsung Security

“I have been working with/around Android and iOS application security for a while. Regardless, I thought I would attend Aditya’s training course. The course has helped me feel some of my knowledge gaps around Android and toughed me few new tricks! Thanks, Adi. I would definitely recommend this course to anyone wishing to learn more about the technical aspect of Android and iOS security.”
