Microsoft disappointed Google by revealing the security vulnerability in Windows 8.1 two days before releasing the corresponding patch.
Earlier this month, Google released details about a security flaw in Windows 8.1 that has yet to be fixed and could allow malicious people to exploit this vulnerability. The search giant made the decision to publish the bug as part of its Project Zero, which gives companies 90 days to correct any vulnerabilities before making the information public.

Microsoft’s senior director insists that fixing security bugs can be a “complex, lengthy and time-consuming process” and that Google should have been more cooperative as the software could affect millions of users.

The search giant also believes its policy leads software companies to address any vulnerabilities more quickly.
