Google and Microsoft are in the war of words as Google reveal the Windows bug just 10 days after telling the firm about it – Google’s revelation of security flaw made Microsoft anger.
The bug was discovered by Google on 21st of October and gives a week to firm to react and to fix the error – Google added the issue was serious as it is being actively exploited.
Google give just seven days for recovery of error to Microsoft and tell the world about the error and made it public – the flaw involves a file Win32k.sys and an attacker can use to access the things they shouldn’t be able to.
Microsoft has responded with anger at the bug publication and for not giving proper time for development of patches and also added today’s disclosure by Google put customers at risk – we recommend customers to use Microsoft Edge browser for the better security.
In 2013, Google launched a policy for giving developers 60 days if comes to any error they identified and then the developer has to remove healthcpc.virusinc.org/soma/ within the time period but giving only seven days for error removing to Microsoft is actively abused.
Google added that it is better to tell the public about the flaws and are not be hidden – and also added with aggressive timeline that the time period is short for creating a fix but it should be enough time to publish advice about – the search firm also added to use its chrome browser which is not exposed by vulnerability.
A Microsoft spokesperson said: we disagree with Google – what’s right for Google is not always right for the customers. The matter of making flaws public is right or not is the game of debate – there must be reasonable arguments from both parties but the fact is we still not know the attackers and the targets.
Microsoft and Google have previously is in the war in January 2015 over the Windows 8.1 flaw as Google similarly published the vulnerability just two days before planned patch was set to be published.
