Yosemite 0-Day: vendor and researcher ethics

This article by Chris Williams for The Register on Get root on an OS X 10.10 Mac: The exploit is so trivial it fits in a tweet appeared yesterday, and does a reasonable job of describing what the problem is.

Today’s blog by Graham Cluley for Intego – Apple Criticised for Not Patching OS X Yosemite Zero-Day Vulnerability is rather more analytical in terms of ethical considerations: not only the ethics of responsible disclosure, but also the assertion that Apple has fixed the bug in the beta of the forthcoming El Capitan, but hasn’t backported it to Yosemite.
