Did Microsoft Threaten to disrupt the Internet?

Did Microsoft Threaten to disrupt the Internet?

In November Kyle Pflug of Microsoft posted they were considering blocking SHA-1 certificates as early as June 2016. NIST/DISA extended SHA1 deprecation until January of 2017. What will be the impact of software vendors taking action prematurely. Will this be the Y2K of Internet Security? I'm already running into issues with specific encryption protocols. Are companies aware of what security protocols are used by their web services and will they be impacted? What is the risk of not changing protocols? How have current hacks impacted these decisions? All comments welcome.
