Did I say the issue should be hidden? No, I did not. Please, read
again what I said with a cool head :)

No one hides it, everyone has got detailed, clear and truthful
e-mail about this situation. Obviously security team will not reveal
what they are doing right now because they are not finished yet. If
you have an idea about handling security incidents, you should
understand why they do not reveal every tiny detail to the public at
the moment. They do the right thing. They handle it professionally!

There should be no panic or shouting. Be clever, stay calm and wait
till responsible people will tell you what to do next. Shouting and
disappointment never helps in such cases.

Not only yours, mine too. But I am not panicking or shouting. What
can we do right now? Nothing. So keep calm and wait. This is the
best you can do now, believe me :) Disrupting security team work
with shouts and accusations will not help at all.
