Android with linux kernel is on its way to be a standard platform of various smart devices. Therefore, Android platform based linux kernel rootkit will be a major security threat to smart phones, tablet PCs, smart TVs and so on. Although there is an urgent need of remedy for this threat, no solution or even a suitable study has been announced.
