Microsoft Unhappy at Google’s Disclosure of Windows Bug

Yesterday, Google disclosed a Windows bug alerting users to protect themselves against possible vulnerabilities. The tech giant released a patch for Chrome to protect the users, while the bug itself is being actively exploited and Microsoft is seriously displeased over the “uncoordinated” disclosure.

Google updated the users on its official blog that the security issue was reported to Microsoft 10-days prior to the unveiling. However, Microsoft condemned the short-term patience of Chrome-maker about the Windows Bug.

“We believe in coordinated vulnerability disclosure, and today’s disclosure by Google puts customers at potential risk,” company’s spokesperson said in an official statement.

According to the details, the Windows bug is actually a flaw in the win32k system, which is actively allowing attackers to escape from security sandboxes.  A similar issue was also making Flash Player vulnerable, but Adobe has released a quick patch just like Chrome.

However, things aren’t as simple for Microsoft because Chrome and Flash Player are small software compared to the win32k system, which is more complex in nature. Google has previously disclosed Windows vulnerabilities, but this time, things do feel escalated because according to Microsoft software engineers, 10 days was a really short time to assess and fix a security bug in the operating system.

  1. Amazing blog! Do you have any tips for aspiring writers?
    I’m planning to start my own blog soon but I’m a little lost
    on everything. Would you recommend starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many choices out there that
    I’m totally confused .. Any tips? Thanks a lot!

  2. With a insufficient opportunity to continue on holiday, socialize or buy a
    myriad of items, many clients happen to be reflecting around the value of committing to
    well-chosen items with regards to home who have the ability to deliver a long time of joy.
    The disposable design has gotten a back seat
    and only hand-crafted heirloom pieces that secure the artisan community and will be treasured
    from one generation to another.

    At Kassavello this time has been a time for reflection and
    gratitude but since the world emerges to a new era
    we’re excited for being part of the industry choosing a fresh way of design and reconsidering the impact who’s plays to all of
    our lives.
