The vulnerability was discovered on May 19th, 2021, and was reported to the Linux kernel security team. A patch for the bug was released on June 10th, 2021, just three weeks after its discovery. However, it is important to note that not all Linux distributions have implemented the patch, and some may take longer to do so.
