What is Rootstv?

Rootstv is an Android malware targeting smart TVs usually running older versions of Android. The malware usually spreads through malicious apps supposedly allowing users to watch tv channels from other parts of the world.

How can I remove Rootstv?

An android-based antivirus can be used if the device supports antivirus software. However, this is usually not the case with older devices. In that case, the best option would be to perform a factory reset and update the device to the latest support firmware version.
