Google Engineers Found Most of Bugs Fixed On Patch Tuesday

Google engineers found 32 of 57 vulnerabilities addressed in this month's Patch Tuesday update? It must be nice to have Google help solve Microsoft's problems for free. wink

Google engineers often find and report security vulnerabilities in Microsoft products, but they outdid themselves this month. Mateusz "j00ru" Jurczyk, a self-described "Windows hacker" and security engineer at Google, is credited for reporting 32 issues with Windows which Microsoft deemed "important," or one step below "critical." A second Google security engineer, Gynvael Coldwind, collaborated on reporting five of those bugs.
