Microsoft To Release Bug Warnings For Third Party Vendors

Microsoft is starting to release security advisories for third party developers. The will do this only after working with the developer to fix the bugs before bringing the knowledge to the public. So far, Chrome and Opera have been given the shout out.

The advisories were the first ever from Microsoft for bugs in third-party products. According to Reavey, they will be followed by others, as necessary. "If we’re in a situation where we find a vulnerability in some other vendor’s product, we will release an advisory ourselves," said Reavey.
