Microsoft will tell all these vendors trying to dictate to them when
to issue a patch to get lost.
Look what happened with Tavis Ormandy, Microsoft said no to 60 days,
so Ormandy released the technical details to the public domain within
All thats going to happen here, is a bunch of companies such as
TippingPoint releasing vulnerabilities to the public domain when no
patch is available and get sued by Microsoft for it.
There is a BIG difference between individual researchers going Full-
disclosure and a vendor such as TippingPoint with a lot of money to
lose going Full-disclosure.
Indeed, Microsoft haven't sued individual researchers, as individual
researchers have next to no money to lose, however big vendors such as
TippingPoint owned by HP, do.
