By deliberately omitting important information about the bug, which is not done for most or all other bugs, perhaps they aren't so much silent as they are "muted" or, sadly, "covered up". There is definitely a lot of validity to Torvalds's complaints about the security "circus", but his reaction to that circus may not be in the best interests of the kernel community either.
Jake, this article has a bit more "opinion" in it than just the facts. It almost sounds like this is a sore topic for you.
