Google has addressed a Linux kernel bug recently discovered by one security firm that has left around 66 percent of Android devices vulnerable to attack. It has already made its patch available to Android partners, but devices running Android 5.0 and above don’t need it.

Since early 2013, a raft of Linux servers, machines running embedded Linux, and even some Android devices have been open to an attack that could allow an unprivileged user or application to execute code as a root user, according to a new report.

Security researchers at Perception Point have outed an issue that was originally introduced when Linux kernel version number 3.8 was released almost three full years ago. It has yet to be patched.
