    I saw this happen to someone else a few weeks ago. Couple questions to help narrow it down.....

    Are we talking about antivirus sofware on the phone itself or on the computer?

    If its the phone antivirus that is being set off..what information is it giving you?

    What antivirus do you have?



    I think its most likely gonna be a false positive. The program realizes that superuser is able to control root access to the phone and doesnt like it. I will dig up the last thread and find out what antivirus that person was using.

    the thing is it has NEVER been detected before....and just like a couple days ago, its being detected by Zoner, AVG, and Lookout....i tried different ones just to see if it was the antivirus....

    the file it detects is this: Exploit.Android.Ratc.A

    RATC refers to rage against the cage, which is an exploit to give an app root access. Its supposed to be patched in gingerbread

    first off WELCOME BACK :D:D:D:D:D

    Is the anti-virus not letting you use the su? there should be an exception somewhere to exclude looking at that file. Not really a fix but would keep it from bugging you
