PR Stunt

On thing which has not really been covered in this whole story is how the criticism by Invisible Things Lab has been made. They chose to include the criticism on the Xen Project in their own security advisory, which was clearly designed for maximum PR impact to give Invisible Things Lab free press coverage. And hey, it has worked.

What they could have done instead, is to start a constructive dialog with the Xen community to actually address their concerns. They did not do this (yet). If you look at this tweet https://twitter.com/rootkovska/status/660154918465110017 it appears that they were maybe not intending to do so.
