Such behavior could easily make the application avoid any virus scanners and even Google’s Bouncer which is looking for specific malware code inside the scanned software. Given that RootSmart utilizes the Gingerbreak exploit, it is capable of being remotely controlled, thus posing into a serious security threat.
