This question already has an answer here:
I was wondering if there is a possibility to exploit the CVE-2016-5195 vulnerability on Android?
Since Android runs on linux kernel, I would expect the answer to be yes. Yet, I was not able to find any mentions online.
EDIT: This question was marked as duplicate, however, I would like to keep it, so that it is focused on the impact on Android, rather than general impact of the vulnerability.
