...so FYI:


This brings up an interesting question I had related to cross-vendor
responsible disclosure when I came across a comment from Chris regarding
the recent libpng vulnerability in Chrome:


(I'm not reproducing the comment here since it's worth reading it in the
full context of the bug)

It's certainly a tricky issue: how does Google balance the secret
disclosure (via an innocent-sounding Chrome commit/update) of a
vulnerability that may help protect _Google's_ users (eg. Chrome users)
while potentially adversely affecting users of other vendors (when
attackers RE the update and attack unpatched browsers)?

/me brought the sour patch kids and frozen cokes.
