Security Vulnerability in RIG-Thumbnail

There's a serious security vulnerability in the current version of RIG (anything < 0.7.5).

I consequently removed all old file releases so that nobody can download a potentially insecure package.

Fixing the vulnerability is relatively easy.
However, given how this was handled, namely that not only the so-called "security researcher" David "Aesthetico" Vieira-Kurz from http://www.majorsecurity.de posted the vulnerability without contacting me first but he also posted the address of my server and consequently my server got compromised in a matter or hours (and that's how I found out he had posted the vulnerability), well given the shameful act from this one person I'm no longer willing to use, promote or develop RIG. I'm all for full disclosure but only made by responsible people.
