What Is a Zero Day Attack?
Zero-day exploits are any vulnerability that hasn’t been noticed or fixed by vendors and that are used immediately by hackers and cyber criminals. This attack is rapid and takes place before anyone fully understands that there is a vulnerability in the software or program, so no one has created a patch or hotfix for it.
These exploits are considered the Holy Grail for hackers since it allows them to take advantage of:
- The company
- The customers of the company
- The Vendor
- Financial Institutions
A zero day attack is often discovered by a hacker who finds the vulnerability in a protocol or product. Once someone recognizes the weakness, they tell as many as possible and all work to exploit it as much as they can.
Even though there haven’t been a lot of significant exploits like this, the threat continues to grow because hackers are getting better at discovering and exploiting them quickly. They are also designed to work faster and infect more systems than ever before. Therefore, zero day attack protection is not only necessary but difficult to find.
