[Full-disclosure] Releasing vulnerability information in blogs - a new trend?

From: Juha-Matti Laurio (juha-matti.laurionetti.fi)

This happened with IIS 5.1 Source Disclosure Under FAT/FAT32 Volumes
Using WebDAV issue
http://lists.grok.org.uk/pipermail/full-disclosure/2005-September/037019.html

Is this a new trend or something, this IIS vulnerability release was
similar as a previous IIS 5/6 500-100.asp "SERVER_NAME" issue published
via (same) Norwegian blog.
Some possible problems:
-report format used in blogs
-possible unofficial blog comments (anonymous exploit codes published etc.)
-vendors has no time to look for new blog entries

Regards,
Juha-Matti
