Last Chapter on Mac WiFi Flaw?

Personally, I am a little tired of the he said, she said over the Apple WiFi flaw and Maynor and Ellch’s research and demo. I think on some level, this account is probably at least a bit credible. Apple does not have the best history of PR, especially in the security arena. What I would much rather see is a focus on constructively moving forward, either a commitment to full or responsible disclosure. I know there are purported issues of liability and SecureWorks was as much of a barrier in this case as anyone. But how are the end users, the ones who benefit most from security research, being better served by any of this?
