"Meanwhile, as one major Linux kernel hole is fixed, another was discovered, patched and publicized."

"Users and administrators should patch their Linux systems as soon as an update for their distro becomes available, if they haven't already done so. A fix for the flaw was not included in this month's Android update. ®"
