installed applications check system also has been updated to detect and block installation of applications that try to use the new vulnerability.

In addition, any Android device that uses the Linux kernel version 3.18 or later, are not vulnerable. For example, Galaxy S7 line of smartphones using kernel version 3.18.20. However, the correction was sent to all partners and added to the AOSP repository.
