Zero Day attacks are specific kinds of holes or vulnerabilities that are found in software that is mostly undetectable to the vendor. The lack of awareness from the vendor’s side is a huge advantage for hackers. Zero Day Attack prevention and protection is a must to keep this backdoor closed.
These holes, known as Zero Day Exploits, can be like open doors for hackers to enter the software and damage the whole system. Once these vulnerabilities are identified, hackers release zero-day exploits through Internet Relay Chat channels or underground websites. These exploits may then be used in a wide range of attacks by various different attackers.
The exploit can sit dormant for as long as the hacker wants. They can use information gleaned for ransomware, blackmail, or worse. They can do this because they can go for completely undetected by your team.
