So I have been following this whole DMUpdater Easy Root discussion about the new exploid root and I was curious about how worried android users should be about this exploit and what if anything can be done to protect your phone. From my understanding the DM team wasn't originally going to release DMUpdater with the exploid root because it would potentially provide hackers with a powerful bit of code they could use in malicious apps to take root access against a users permission thus allowing them to do basically anything to your device. Then the early version of DMUpdater got leaked with the exploid root and other apps popped up using this root method so now the DM team is going to put it back into DMUpdater. So from my understanding the source code for the exploid root will be or already is out there and malicious hackers could potentially exploit it. Now that our phones contains so much of our personal information how worried should users be about this? Will being rooted already help protect you since Superuser Permissions asks each time a program wants root access or does can the exploit circumvent this as well? Is this security hole something that can be patched in a custom rom? I'm not freaking out or anything but I am very curious about what this means for the security of the Android platform and what can be or is being done about it. Thanks to any knowledgeable people who want to chime in to educate me on the subject.
