    Security researchers are both criticizing and empathizing with Microsoft for the 200 days the company needed to create its latest critical software patch.

    The six-plus months is the longest the software giant has taken to release a fix since it started its Trustworthy Computing initiative, a companywide mandate to make security a top priority.

    "If it really took them that long technically to make the fix, then they have other problems. That's not a way to run a software company."
