If you had read the article and knew anything about information security, you'd know that they're not doing anything outside of the well-established standard of responsible disclosure. And they're using the same deadline Google's Project Zero has (90 days).

In other terms, this article is clickbait.

"WikiLeaks requested these companies sign off on a series of conditions, which one unnamed sources suggested might include a disclosure deadline compelling the companies to commit to issuing a patch for their software in 90 days"

That's just one of the conditions. And it doesn't even say what the 'otherwise' is - publishing the vulnerabilities or more. Or what other kind of 'cooperation' they want. And they are already threatening to try to drive their business to more cooperative companies...

"prefer organizations such as Mozilla or Europeans companies that prioritize their users over government contracts" - so everyone who doesn't cooperate with Wikileaks is helping the spying against their customers. Everyone who does is in the clear. Sounds a lot like the sale of indulgences to me...
