Rooting (Android)

rootingrootrooted
The TrueSmart runs in rootuser mode without any checks in place like SU and SuperUser. Legitimate apps that request root access are denied due to the lack of proper steps being taken to root but secure the TrueSmart. This means that malicious apps that try to gain access without requesting permission have full root access to everything on the TrueSmart without the user ever knowing. This includes usernames and passwords, pictures, emails and so on. It is technically feasible to have an app upload all that data to a hacker without the user ever knowing it was happening and then delete itself and almost everything on the TrueSmart. This same type of hack and data theft can also be done in the background by visiting malicious websites.
