[liberationtech] What if the government asks them not to patch?

Earlier this week, Bloomberg News reported that Microsoft and several
other companies were actively handing over information about
vulnerabilities in their software prior to patching those
vulnerabilities, potentially exposing millions of Internet users to
attack.

I'm curious about something slightly different and I've not seen
anyone discuss this yet (specifically about Microsoft): Have there
been any instances where the government request that they not patch a
hole in Windows an what was their response. Does anyone know if MS has
an 'official' policy around such requests?

Thanks,
Anthny
