I highly doubt that Apple is "sticking fingers in it's ears, closing it's eyes and loudly repeating "lalalalalla"." Apple is quite notorious for not letting people know how they react to security issues until after the fact. This policy has worked well for Apple for over a decade now as there are almost no viable attacks against Apple's operating systems compared to the plethora of valid attacks that hit Windows every year. I'm not saying that Apple is any more 'secure' than Windows, but by not advertising every little leak (and their intent to plug it by a specified date) malware authors have to work harder to infiltrate Apple's environment.
Stop looking at who got 'hurt' and start looking at why it was done. Keep in mind that the military tends to work in a very similar manner for very similar reasons.
