@RAMA
You Are Wrong. Rooting never makes any android device more prone to Malicious Software. Because when android phone is rooted a Super User App. like “Kinguser” or “Super User” apk is installed which handles all the root permissions on Android Phone. Whenever an app malicious or safe going to access ANDROID SYSTEM FILES, KINGUSER OR SUPER USER APP asks the USER OF PHONE whether to grant permission or not.. So a USERS OF ROOTED ANDROID PHONE ARE IN FULL CONTROL OF THEIR DEVICES.
