Particularly if they are connoisseurs of bullshit:

"Does OIS support pre-disclosure of vulnerability information to select 
groups?

No. We believe the software author should be given a chance to create a 
fix before vulnerability information is made public, but that there 
should be no
further distribution of that information until the fix is complete. This 
priniciple can be very difficult to adhere to in certain situations, 
such as dealing with the open source community where there aren't 
protections to keep vulnerability information secret."

Yeah, right!

Cheers,

Ben.
