Open source software developers released the exploit of an attack method used by unknown hackers. This one is similar to the FBI’s exploit, about which the judge blocked information. The FBI isn’t going to be the only party who would know about their exploit. So, is it better kept in the hands of people who can use it for whatever purpose? Or, are we all better off having these security flaws published so that software developers can fix them to keep users secure, and users can know when they may be at risk? Which decision keeps more people safe? Who really has your back?
