Yeah, says Google Project Zero, when you think about it, going public with exploit deets immediately after a patch is emitted isn't such a great idea

Picture this and try to Deny and Defend it as Not Being a Persistent ACTive Cyber Threat Vector

Imagine this Pussies Galore scenario: Project Zero privately informs you that their President Trump Make America Great Again application has a security hole in it ...... which every man, woman and child and their dogs can both exploit and be exploited from.

What would that make Google? Friend or Foe? Enemy Combatant or Beacon of Pathfinder Light? Or does IT make them both, and all four, and something else quite totally different too in the Quantum Sector where a bit of this is also a bit of that and together a bit of something else quite unexpected and novel and disruptive even while being engagingly creative and attractively addictive.

What's the bounty for plugging that sorry mess of a security hole? Be realistic now please, for such is the price to be asked for and paid in order to try and effectively right those sorts of wrongs. One can certainly guarantee no more than that, although that will not stop many a useless army of useful fools rushing in to magnificently prove the point.

And can you imagine the alternative gargantuan price of failure to put in an adequate fix against a Western Capital Systems Crash and Flash Market Collapse?
