    I tried the program on my Asus TF201, it said that the tablet was vulnerable to Gingerbreak. I thought that one only applied to devices running Gingerbread, my tablet is running ICS.

    On a plus side, that was the only vulnerability it found, the rest were already patched.

    Gingerbreak is a popular exploit that allows you to gain root. I'd prefer at least one of those exploits remain unpatched. Edit: I've only ever seen Gingerbreak applied while debugging was active, so...if you have USB debugging turned on...
