Can't you just run the app in an Android emulator and shark it?

After uninstalling the 360 security android app, I found after repeated checks of Network Info on my phone via the Ping & DNS app that even then the HTTP connection to IP address 123.125.114.8 still frequently showed up. So, I monitored the network connections on my phone via the Network Connections app (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.antispycell.connmonitor) and found that this time the HTTP connection to IP address 123.125.114.8 was being established by the ES File Explorer app (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.estrongs.android.pop (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.estrongs.android.pop)). So, it is possible that the insecure HTTP connection to the above IP address that I observed when both the 360 security and ES File Explorer app were installed on my phone was in fact because of the ES File Explorer app or the other possibility is that both the apps have the same problem. I haven't had a c

So, I will report this as an issue for the ES File Explorer app in a separate email.

> "Snoops data to China Unicom via insecure HTTP link! Found while checking Network info on my device with this app installed that it had established an insecure HTTP connection to an IP address(123.125.114.8) on Chinese state owned China Unicom network (China Unicom owns a stake in app developer via Qihoo 360). Also, when installed, found my phone temperature rising frequently indicating covert data transfer from my phone. I've now uninstalled this Chinese spying app & advice the same to anyone using the app. Resp to comment: updated above info with IP addr.

I checked the Network Info on my phone when this app was installed, using the Ping & DNS app(https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.ulfdittmer.android.ping (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.ulfdittmer.android.ping)) and found the insecure HTTP connection to the above IP address. After I uninstalled the app, the HTTP connection to the above IP address was gone, as well. On checking the WHOIS info(https://www.whois.com/whois/123.125.114.8 (https://www.whois.com/whois/123.125.114.8)) for this IP address it can be seen that it is indeed on the Chinese state-owned China Unicom network. I had App usage tracking permission on Android enabled for this app, to facilitate phone temperature reduction, when I observed the above.
