Once the patch is available, the exploit is wide open on all unpatched installations. Clients who have the need for priority support are more likely to be hacked than the rest of us, so it's in IPS' best interests to get those clients patched before the exploit is publicly known. It wouldn't exactly help improve IPS' reputation if forums like Neowin, any of the NFL forums or Minecraft Forum where hacked because their IT people where unavailable at the time of the announcement (I'm just assuming these have premium support). Several support techs may also be required to get those forums back again, meaning it'll take longer for you to get your support tickets answered.
When a possible security issue is found, it's normal practice to give the developers a set amount of time to release a patch, or wait till the patch is released, before the exploit is publicly available, as can be seen in these timelines:
In most iOS apps (maybe Android too) that features a navigation sidebar which slides out have the button and sidebar on the left side, at least on the apps I frequently use. So for the sake of consistency I'd like to request having it moved to the other side.
