Recently, as the utilization rate for mobile devices has increased, cyber attacks targeting them have been increasing. Cyber attacks such as ransomware in general network space have started to spread to mobile devices. In addition, malware that exploits mobile vulnerabilities is also increasing rapidly. Threats to these mobile devices could cause negative damage to human life. Thus, the cyber attack that causes secondary damage to the real world is called a Cyber Influence Attack. This paper presents an influence attack scenario in which the exploit of the Android OS acquires the permission of the mobile device for propagating false information. Based on this scenario, we analyze the damage assessment of mobile device exploit that can cause real social damage as well as damage to cyberspace assets through FAIR (Factor Analysis of Information Risk) model.
