There is an article in ComputerWorld that talks about how Finjan found a security flaw in the search engine.

Google promptly fixed it. 

Wow.  What an amazing concept.  Flaw found.  Flaw fixed.

Our experiences with Google have been equally satisfying. This company gets it.  Responsive and highly professional. 

Contrast that with Cisco frantically attempting to bludgeon Michael Lynn into silence and their keystone cops attempts to kill the information.  In that case, they were responsive in the beginning with Michael, but then things just got really weird. Of course, all they got was the Streisand Effect (a term TechDirt coined a while back).

(At some point, however, I will write about the ethics of releasing security information to the public, but that’s another discussion).
