    Welcome to Android Central! That sounds like bad news. Some malware can autoroot the device: 10 million Android phones infected by all-powerful auto-rooting apps | Ars Technica. See if you can install a good anti-malware app like Malwarebytes or Lookout and run a scan. If it is malware, it may be difficult to get rid, since it's presumably installed to the system root. This usually requires the phone to be wiped and the firmware reinstalled.
