I dont  think that he waited for vendor to confirm fix in production and I
dont see a reason that he needs to wait . If FB did not ask him to refrain
from disclosure.. y shld  he ?

09/30/2011 Reported Vulnerability to the Vendor
10/26/2011 Vendor Acknowledged Vulnerability
10/27/2011 Publicly Disclosed

 Not fixed yet. At least not yesterday when I checked.

Nathan, didn't Facebook ask for some time to fix this bug after they have
acknowledged it?

1. Summary:
