The term you're looking for is "responsible disclosure".

The Linux community is always quick to rail against Microsoft for taking its sweet time to implement fixes, so given that this particular problem already has a fix, I don't think it's unfair to have these details disclosed at this point in time.

Somewhat related:

What I personally don't appreciate is the fact that a lot of vulnerabilities are now well-known, and I have a bunch of Android-based devices that never get any security update, so I'm very much at risk if I wanted to use any of those devices to do any sort of semi-important transaction. My newest device is on Android 6. At the time I concluded I only have myself to blame if I keep buying hardware that never gets security fixes, so I figured that was going to be my last. At some point after that, Google made some sort of vague promise that all devices would get upgrades no matter how laggard an OEM is. Has the situation changed? Should I believe that and spend a couple more hundred bucks again? I'd feel pretty stupid if I did without any assurance...
