“The US government discovered and notified Microsoft Corp on these vulnerabilities. The US Government carefully weighs the national security, public, and commercial interests in deciding to disclose a vulnerability. Moreover, we recognize when vulnerabilities may pose such a systemic risk that they require expedited disclosure,” Deputy National Security adviser for Cyber & Emerging Technologies Anne Neuberger said in a statement.
