Question Some help with few apps

hi guys , i just rooted my android yesterday so i should say that i'm not a specialist yet , so i have a few questions about wifi hacking apps( wifi kill and dSploit) i have a nexus 5 phone which is running 4.4.3 kitkat and every time i try to download wifikill or dSploit my antivirus ( avast ) tells me that the app has a virus i dont know why , i tried to download these apps from a lot of forums but the resoult was the same .... the app countain a malicious software ..
So , can you explain me why i have these problems with wifi hacking apps ? i really wanna know because i rooted my phone just for that app : wifikill and now i can't install it..
If you can let me the link from where to download the app , especially WifiKill and tell me what to do to not receive the allert from antivirus I would be grateful.
Thx again guy cuz you read my threat and sorry for my bad english

Android is actually a fairly secure OS. I have never had a virus on any of my devices. If you do however, browse questionable sites on an unsecured network (watching adult movies at starbucks), then the risk becomes greater that you could get a virus. I don't use the wifikill app, but in my opinion anything you find on XDA-developers should be safe to install. If the app turns out to not be compatible with 4.4.3, then just simply uninstall it. It won't do any damage to your phone.

Couldn't agree more about xda. Now a lot of apps have ads and possibly some malware but viruses are very uncommon on Android. Unless of course your letting unknown apps have superuser permissions for the most part you should be ok
