Summary0008769: msfvenom - parameter 'android:exported="true"' is missing for trojan definition - installation fails on android

I build the trojan meterpreter with msfvenom in an app. If I try to install this new app by "adb install" on android, I receive the following message:

adb: failed to install Calculator_8.6 (612662282)_APKPure_meterpreter.apk: Failure [INSTALL_PARSE_FAILED_MANIFEST_MALFORMED: Failed parse during installPackageLI: /data/app/vmdl1440181840.tmp/base.apk (at Binary XML file line 0000079): Targeting S+ (version 31 and above) requires that an explicit value for android:exported be defined when intent filters are present]

If I upload the app on my android and try to install it directly: he installation also fails.

The error obviously is, that in the manifest the additional entry 'android:exported="true"' is missing on this location:

    <receiver android:label="Xnpjr" android:name="">
            <action android:name="android.intent.action.BOOT_COMPLETED"/>

I can't analyse this more nearer, because I can de-compile but not compile the app with apktool. But this also is the case, if i de-compile and try to compile the original app without the trojan.

Best Regards

For issues with tools like Metasploit just shipped with Kali you should contact the author of that tool ->

I informed github. You can close the issue, or do you want to know the result ?
