Google Developer Infuriated Microsoft

The software giant Microsoft wants the head of a Google developer because the latter told everyone about a hole in its software. Recently, Microsoft claimed that some hackers have attacked personal computers by exploiting a bug in its operating system that was first disclosed a few months ago by a Google researcher.

The snark was made by Microsoft as the company introduced a patch for the flaw a few days ago. It turned out that the bug in question was a zero-day vulnerability linked to the kernel for all editions of the operating system from Windows 2000 to the present.

As a result, Tavis Ormandy, Google security engineer, came under fire as he failed to tell Vole about the vulnerability before making the fact public. Microsoft complained that it urged hackers to launch “targeted attacks” on corporate or government targets, having espionage and sabotage targets in mind.

The security engineer told the world about the disclosure of the bug in the Windows OS before the software giant had released tools to fix it. When asked why he did so, Ormandy explained that Microsoft’s security division was difficult to work with. Moreover, he recommended other researchers to use pseudonyms and anonymous email when getting in touch with Microsoft. In the meantime, Google claimed that the Ormandy incident had nothing to do with the search giant and the chap decided to snarl at Microsoft in his own time.
