Angry Researchers Disclose Windows Zero-day Bug [pcworld.com]
An anonymous group of security researchers last week published information about an unpatched Windows bug, saying that they were disclosing the vulnerability because of the way Microsoft treated a colleague.
"Due to hostility toward security researchers, the most recent example being of Tavis Ormandy, a number of us from the industry (and some not from the industry) have come together to form MSRC: the Microsoft -Spurned Researcher Collective," the message read. "MSRC will fully disclose vulnerability information discovered in our free time, free from retaliation against us or any inferred employer."
