Instead of offering information on a fix, Microsoft took the opportunity to say that Google’s actions have potentially placed customers at risk, to promote Windows 10 and to argue for coordinated disclosure. For its part, Google takes the view that seven days is plenty of time to issue guidance and notification, if not a proper patch. And so the battle over disclosure goes on. Whose side do you take?
