Google researcher publishes vulnerability after only 5 day warning

June 10, 2010

In a show of irresponsible behavior a researcher for Google published a vulnerability in Windows after only giving Microsoft 5 days to resolve the issue. In addition, he also provide a working example of code that shows hackers step by step how to exploit the hole. It is customary to allow a company 30 days to issue a vulnerability before publishing material. 

The vulnerability affects all versions of Windows in the default configuration.  The problem is located within the Help system in the OS.
