Microsoft vulnerabilities: full disclosure and no disclosure

,----[ Quote ]
| Following on from full disclosure, 
| Microsoft now has a new disclosure variant 
| to contend with â no disclosure. French 
| security services provider VUPEN  claims  
| to have discovered two critical security 
| vulnerabilities in the recently released 
| Office 2010 â but has passed information 
| on the vulnerabilities and advice on 
| mitigation to its own customers only. For 
| now, the company does not intend to fill 
| Microsoft in on the details, as they 
| consider the quid pro quo â a mention in 
| the credits in the security bulletin â 
| inadequate.


Spurned security researchers form anti-MS collective

,----[ Quote ]
| Security researchers irked by how 
| Microsoft responded to Google engineer 
| Tavis Ormany's public disclosure of a 
| zero-day Windows XP Help Center security 
| bug have banded together to form a group 
| called the Microsoft Spurned Researcher 
| Collective*.
| The group is forming a "union" in the 
| belief that together they will be better 
| placed to handle flak from Redmond and 
| elsewhere following the publication of 
| security flaws. A statement, published by 
| The Windows Club blog, explains the 
| Collective's stance.
| âDue to hostility toward security 
| researchers, the most recent example being 
| of Tavis Ormandy, a number of us from the 
| industry (and some not from the industry) 
| have come together to form MSRC: the 
| Microsoft-Spurned Researcher Collective," 
| it said. "MSRC will fully disclose 
| vulnerability information discovered in 
| our free time, free from retaliation 
| against us or any inferred employer.â
