This is hilarious!

These things always freak out Anti Virus programs. Of course they do, it exploits a security fault. That's what enables you to root your devices. And security exploits is what Virus Scanners are designed to detect.

Never underestimate the power of stupid people in large groups.

The simplest solutions are often the cleverest. They are also usually wrong.
