Microsoft abruptly dumps public Patch Tuesday alerts

"For the first time in a decade, Microsoft today did not give all customers advance warning of next week's upcoming Patch Tuesday slate. Instead, the company suddenly announced it is dropping the public service and limiting the alerts and information to customers who pay for premium support."

Wonder if Google's revealing of Windows 7/8.1 security flaw that went unpatched had anything to do with Microsoft's decision on this. I saw it got parched in yesterday's updates but that was a dirt bag move by Google if you ask me.. What's the point of putting millions of customers computers at risk? I'm sure not all of Google's code is flawless.
