MS Asks Google To Delay Fuzzer Tool

eldavojohn writes “Polish Google security white hat Michal Zalewski has announced concerns that one of a hundred vulnerabilities his fuzzer tool found in IE is well known to third party hackers in China. His simple explanation provides an interesting counter argument to Microsoft’s usual request that security problems not be released until they can slowly investigate them. From the article, ‘Microsoft asked Zalewski to delay cross_fuzz’s release, but he declined, in part because of his fear the IE vulnerability was already being explored by Chinese hackers, but also because the company’s security experts had not responded to information he provided.’ You can read about and download cross_fuzz for your own use.”
