Selective disclosure
What I reckon is happening is that the government is keeping all these secrets in storage for fear that if the data got out, that the hackers would be able to replicate what's been going on. They would have to be very careful what  information to release if they're going to disclose any of it at all!

Staying neutral is best
I guess the I belong in the third group as well because every scenario would often come with its own pros and cons. It is not entirely up to us alone to weigh in on whether or not the vulnerabilities should indeed be kept in a secret storage or be let out in the open. Instead, we need to analyze on the given situation at that exact moment in time to see which solution suits best.

Developing and Testing an Effective Breach Response Plan
Whether or not a data breach is a disaster for the organization depends on the security team's response and that is based on how the team developed a breach response plan beforehand and if it was thoroughly tested. Inside this report, experts share how to: -understand the technical environment, -determine what types of incidents would trigger the plan, -know which stakeholders need to be notified and how to do so, -develop steps to contain the breach, collect evidence, and initiate recovery.
