 Irresponsible Disclosure

Jon Lasser at Security Focus brings us: Irresponsible Disclosure.

"I am a strong proponent of full disclosure, as regular readers of this column know. However, if a hole is not actively being exploited, it's best to give developers a chance to respond. This is especially true when the package is as dominant as Apache. The thirty to forty-five days that ISS claims they typically provide to companies regarding security holes should have been observed, and would have been adequate, in this case."
