Linux TCP flaw lets 'anyone' hijack Internet traffic

Someone sent me this note about a new problem with the Linux kernel. Looking around, there is lots of information about it but little which confirms when it is actually fixed.
Most articles are copies of each other and all seem to say;
>The problem exists in any operating system running Linux kernel 3.6 or newer. Linux 3.6 was introduced in 2012.
>The vulnerability allows an attacker from anywhere on the Internet to
This is rather confusing because nothing seems to say when this was patched or even if it is? For example, looking at one server, it's running 3.10 which one would assume is long patched.
Anyone know more about this?
