Microsoft have slammed Google for making the Vulnerabilities public. Microsoft made this point sighting the reason that Microsoft Released the Patch for the Vulnerability Just two days after it. According to senior director of Microsoft Security Response Centre Chris Betz,” We asked Google to work with us to protect customers by withholding details until Tuesday, January 13, when we will be releasing a fix. Although following through keeps to Google’s announced timeline for disclosure, the decision feels less like principles and more like a “gotcha”, with customers the ones who may suffer as a result. What’s right for Google is not always right for customers. We urge Google to make protection of customers our collective primary goal.”
