DroidRooter.D is a binary exploit that is used to gain root privilege on an Android device.
A False Positive is when a file is incorrectly detected as harmful, usually because its code or behavior resembles known harmful programs. A False Positive will usually be fixed in a subsequent database update without any action needed on your part. If you wish, you may also:
Check for the latest database updates
First check if your F-Secure security program is using the latest updates, then try scanning the file again.
Submit a sample
After checking, if you still believe the file is incorrectly detected, you can submit a sample of it for re-analysis.
Note: If the file was moved to quarantine, you need to collect the file from quarantine before you can submit it.
Exclude a file from further scanning
If you are certain that the file is safe and want to continue using it, you can exclude it from further scanning by the F-Secure security product.
Note: You need administrative rights to change the settings.
DroidRooter.D is a 'Gingerbreak' and 'psneuter' ELF binary exploit that could be used by an Android malware to gain root privilege on a compromised device.
Even though it is classified as an exploit, under certain circumstances, DroidRooter.D may instead be considered as a hack-tool. Users might deliberately run these exploits on their own phone in order to 'jailbreak' or unlock the device.
