It's standard practice for a security researcher who finds holes in 
software to privately inform the software vendor before making the flaw 
known to the public. How much time should elapse between the two events 
is debatable, but a Google researcher has recently come under fire for 
giving Microsoft just four days notice about a flaw, then releasing a 
proof-of-concept exploit.


"The strongest reason for people to retain the right to keep and bear
arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in
government." --- (Thomas Jefferson)
