Skim the post. I guess if one had to search for and then install "Coolmuster Android Data Recovery" and then
eveeve wrote:Step 1: Connect your phone to computer...
Step 2: Enable USB debugging on your phone...
Step 3: Scan for the lost photos on your phone
Then there will be an superuser Request shows on your phone, you need to click "Allow" to on your phone to allow the app to scan your phone.
malware will be installed on one's phone, and the phone will then pretty much be property of the creator of the malware.

IMHO the creators of eveeve are trying to bypass spam filters by posting a "helpful article" to "help" people recover their lost photos on their Android phone.
