The inability to readily upgrade the Android OS is coming home to roost

Whilst Android is made available for free from Google (so they pick up the advertising revenue) and runs on almost all non-Apple smartphones, it is the responsibility of each manufacturer to take a new version or fix and make it available to their users. This rarely happens for installed users and has, largely, not been a significant issue for most users, but this appears to have changed. A vulnerability has just been made public that affects almost all versions from 2.2 to 5.1, and for the average user, there is no simple fix. This article gives the best explanation I have seen of this vulnerability and its implications.
