No way to really know how much is due to kernel exploits. I used the term "kernel" to refer to the base OS itself, outside of Google Play Services. Google Play has no ability to modify the kernel so any past (or future) exploits outside of Google Play will not be able to get updates via Google Play. All Verify Apps/Google Play will do is get the people writing malware to specifically target areas of Android that are outside their control.
