I was on the phone with a friend of mine, for about....2 hours, and while I was talking to her my phone ended the call, so I looked at my phone and the lock screen was moving left to right but then it would reset, and do it again, it did it seemingly erratically, until I finally unlocked it thinking it would stop if I did that. It didn't stop, it swiped left to a different homescreen, then it opened my browser (which happened to have my profile on fb as the page), it then clicked my status message area, and it hit enter nonstop, this whole time I was fighting with it but my presses on the touchscreen were largely ignored, only a few inputs actually worked. I tried exiting the browser, but it kept reopening. Then it started going to other peoples profiles, and it would click to post a message on their wall, but it would just hit enter a bunch of times and it wouldn't actually post it. So, some of the behavior seemed human like, some of it seemed sporadic and glitchy as if it were my phone itself. I ended up removing the battery since I couldn't do anything on my phone with it being like that. That ended up fixing the problem. This happened at around 11am this morning, it hasn't happened at all since then.
I started to think how it would be possible for someone to remotely gain access to my phone. I have root access to my phone, I used the stickied method at the top of the Droid 2 hack section. Could this have, in any way made my phone vulnerable to security exploits?
Also, I also think it would most likely have to do with the apps that I downloaded. Im going to list all possible suspects.
setcpu, shootme, wireless tether, android terminal emulator (by jack palevich), battery indicator (darshan computing), colornote notepad notes, calltrack (asterdroid mobile), mytextspeed (mydroidsoft), homeswitcher (ymst), netcounter (cyril jaquier), sms backup (christoph studer).
All other apps are big name apps, like facebook, engadget, cnet, etc.
Does anyone consider any of the apps I listed security threats? I don't, but my mind can be changed otherwise.
Is it even possible for someone to gain remote access to your phone?
