Hello,

today as i was accessing my email on Opera Mobile, the SuperSU window popped up by itself and asked me for root acces for a program called "debuggerd.exynosabuse". I dont know what this debuggerd.exynosabuse is and i didnt open any apk before the SU window suddenly popped up..so naturally i denied it root access...then I went into the SuperSU log file and I saw that it kept trying to get root access for two minutes continuously and about 15 tries... also it doesnt have any icon in the apps section of SuperSU. Any ideas what this is about?


Thanks

Re: [Q] debuggerd.exynosabuse
Look for the app in app drawer named exynos abuse.

Ok. So I m looking for what exactly? I have already mentioned that it is called debuggerd.exynosabuse. it is not the exynos abuse apk, which I used to root my phone and patch the exploit. It is a different app that has no icon in the SU logfile. This debuggerd is always trying to get root access to modify some root files but I have it denied in SU. It tries to get root access 50 times a day or more. What is this program and where did it come from and what should I do with it. Thanks.

Re: [Q] debuggerd.exynosabuse
Try a full wipe including system cache and dalvik and data.
Then flash latest stock rom and root via cfautoroot.
Also backing up anything using any software is not recommended as malware might have infected it.

I just had the same experience for the first time, unfortunately seeing it was a part of ExynosAbuse, I authorized it...

I then saw a lot going on, and in between SuperSU notifications, I saw Adblock Plus notifications too... Maybe related?

Well, I'd like to know before I wipe, it's not an easy thing to do for me right now, plus if it's something in the app and I reinstall the app after wiping, I'll have the same problem...

Than you for your input Dr Ketan. I see that this is a relatively new problem and its got people wondering/worried, I appreciate that this issue has come to your attention.

Dear UtkarshGupta, Sure anyone can nuke their phone and wipe all and flash new, but thats not what the xda community is about. We are here to share, communicate, support, enhance, develop, and learn.

Understanding the problem would be the first step in to solving it. When we know what is the size of the problem, we would then know how to deal with it appropriately. It might be something simple that can be cleaned easily, no nuke needed.

As for me, I am happy with my 4.1.1 jb. I dont want to flash any new firmware.

By now I have taken several screen shots of it trying to get root access to many files and even it was trying to change values and commands but all were denied ofcourse because I have it blocked in SU. If it would help the devs or anyone else, I can attach the screenshots if need be.

Well, I have some news.

I removed debuggerd from SuperSU authorizations. Later on, I used Chrome and I got all these requests again. This time, I refused (and took screenshots). At the end, Chrome didn't load the webpage. But mostly, I had no internet connection at all!

Then, I remembered that the first time I had the request, it was when using the web browser. And then, I realized it happened the day after I installed Android Adblock Plus.

I uninstalled it, rebooted, and then my connection worked. I'll try to remove debuggerd from the SuperSU blacklist to see if it still happens.

Anyone can correlate?
