Default Google OUTS a Microsoft security COVER-UP

More mud slinging and totally unnecessary....just wondering how Google would react if someone makes a list of Android bugs (including 0 days) and posts them online....Glass houses, stones, etc...

These bugs are at least 90 days old, not some senseless 0 day mud slinging. Guess it'll set some sort of precedent.

Yup...Maybe this would force MS to change their schedule and release the patches sooner.

I found this priceless quote in the Ars Technica comment thread about this spat:

Sad but true.
