MSIE (mshtml.dll) OBJECT tag vulnerability

You do a disservice to all IT shops by announcing these vulnerabilities
before contacting the vendor. I am sure it would not generate as much
web traffic to your site, but it is only fair and right to allow at
least some amount of time for the vendor to respond. If you think you
are helping, you are wrong. Would you go around town checking which
stores are unlocked at night and then publish the list in the news
before letting the shop owners know? That's pretty much what you are
doing. It's just not helping. There is no proof that it is either.
