In this work, we reconstruct a set of Android app lineages which each of them represents a sequence of app versions that are historically released for the same app. Then, based on these lineages, we empirically investigate the evolution of app vulnerabilities, which are revealed by well-known vulnerability scanners, and subsequently summarise various interesting findings that constitute a tangible knowledge to the community.
