Apache (and the big bad monopoly tactic)

Apache has released new versions of both httpd 1.x and 2.x to address 
the problem.  According to an article I read, a software company called 
ISS found the bug and issued an announcement.  They also released a 
patch that didn't address the problem correctly and did not reveal the 
true scope of the problem.

However, ISS, a Microsoft partner, did not tell the Apache developers 
first so no patch was available yet everyone running it was vulnerable. 
 The article implied that Redmond is taking a new tactic on badmouthing 
open source software.
