Google has recently faced criticism for disclosing Windows 8.1 Security bugs earlier this week and it Seems that Google Doesn’t learn from it and have done it again. Google has again pointed out some Major Security Flaw in Microsoft Operating System.
Google have recently made two Security Bugs Public in the infamous Microsoft Operating System specially Windows 7 and Windows 8.1. According to Google, one of the two security flaw is a major security glitch which means that an attacker can impersonate a user and decrypt the data on Windows 7 and Windows 8.1.
Google’s Project Zero is a security based recent project which searches the Internet for identifying the Vulnerabilities around the Web. In Google’s Project Zero, Google searches various Vulnerabilities in Websites, in Apps as well as in Communication Services. Google gives the respective Companies a time grace of 90 Days for the company to fix the Vulnerabilities. If the Company fails to do so, then Google would make the Vulnerability public and bring it to Light.
Moreover, in case of Google making Security Bugs in Windows 8.1 and Windows 7 came in response of the fact that Microsoft has passed their Deadline of 90 days because the The Security Bugs in Windows 7 ans Windows 8.1 was reported by Google to Microsoft on 17th October 2014.
The second Vulnerability as being reported by Google regarding Microsoft Windows 7 ans Windows 8.1 is also a major flaw in Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 since it allows the attacker to meddle with System’s Power Function, thereby impersonating a user.
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.”
