The rage against the cage exploit is a flashable file used to gain root access on carrier locked android phones. However, BitDefender deletes it as though it was a virus. Commonly found in OneClickRoot applications, and is of course crucial to running said application. It won't let me attach a file for some reason.

Thanks! (IMG:style_emoticons/default/wink.gif)

P.S.: Is there any way for me to make it ASK ME before it deletes files willy nilly? It went off and deleted this exact file in a number of different places on my hard drive (Android SDK tools, flashing tools, rooting tools, etc)

The zip file containing rageagainstthecage-arm5.bin can be found here:
http://devphone.org/files/epic4g/oneclickr....1.0.1-EC05.zip
EDIT: To clarify, it's in the root directory of the zip folder.

Download link was found here:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1076967

XDA is a trusted forum with many upstanding members.

I apologize for having to link it to you, it still won't let me upload files. I've tried uploading the bin file (only 6kb in size, very small) and I tried zipping or raring it and then uploading it, to no avail. It says "Upload failed. You are not permitted to upload this type of file"

Hi OhHey

The detection will remain because it could be used by malware to root the Android phones.

Thank you in advance for understanding. Have a nice day.

There's really no point. The phones would have had to have been put manually in debug mode in order for them to be rooted. A setting that is not on by default. There's also no incentive for malware to root an android phone, since it only allows the user more control over the phone. Not seeing how this is an issue to be honest.
