All Andriod Users Beware! This Android Virus Auto Root Your Device and May Destroy Your Device Forever

This post is directed to all Android users because it
concerns all of you. There is a latest virus in town that can completely kill
your Android phone permanently. It’s call auto root. 

Auto-rooting adware is a worrying development in the Android
ecosystem in which malware roots the device automatically after the user
installs it, embeds itself as a system application, and becomes nearly
impossible to remove
.

To make matter worst, The researchers have found more than 20,000 samples of trojanized apps masquerading itself
 legitimately in  top applications, including Candy Crush,
Facebook, GoogleNow, NYTimes, Okta, Snapchat, Twitter, WhatsApp, and many
others.
To add more salt to injury, the report says that these virus
cannot be uninstalled or removed. The owner might have to end up buying another
device entirely. Even Factory reset cannot remove it. A guy on Nairaland is
already facing this condition.
My 1 cent advice
Don’t install applications from unknown source you don’t
trust.  Always installs apps from Google
Play store or else be ready to kiss your customize android device goodbye.
