How to protect Android devices against Quadrooter security flaw?

There was an article by Check Point that said 900 million Android devices were at risk because of something called the Quadrooter security bug. What do I need to do to protect against this threat?
It's not really anything to worry about. As you noted, this was brought to people's attention by Check Point, a company that sells security software for Android. They have an obvious interest in freaking people out so they can sell more software.

There was an article yesterday in ComputerWorld that took Check Point to task and pointed out that you almost certainly have an effective defense built into Android called Verify Apps (as long as you are running Android 2.3 or later....which you almost certainly are).
