No, it's not malpractice to give what are normal professional courtesies. If your former counsel gave the extension, and the other side relied on it, and they filed the answer in time, I suggest you tell them you will agree to vacate the judgment and allow them to answer--a judge will do it anyway, and your making them spend time and money to do it means you lose the chance to get them to owe you a favor when you need it--and that time will come in the litigation.
