Tool.Rooter is the detection name for the specific apps (tools) that are designed to gain root access on Android devices. To perform rooting, these utilities typically use single or multiple exploits. The system root privileges, which are obtained by using the tools, may be temporary or permanent depending on the operating system version and target device’s hardware platform.
Tool.Rooter apps are not malicious on their own but represent a potential threat since they can be utilized by cybercriminals as a tool to gain control over the Android devices. In addition, such tools can work in conjunction with various malicious programs like trojans.
According to statistics, every fifth program for Android contains a vulnerability (or, in other words, a "loophole") that lets cybercriminals successfully introduce Trojans onto mobile devices and manipulate them into doing whatever actions they need them to.
