without giving Microsoft adequate time to prepare a patch
Considering that Microsoft has several long standing known un-patched vulnerabilities that stretch years and years I don't blame Google for not having much faith in MS to act quickly if they just reported it to in the private.
That being said there is a high level of irresponsibility in how they went about this.
With Google prepping a desktop Operating System, it would be wise to remember that old saying, "what goes around - comes around".
So true, no OS is without flaws.
