What is a Zero-Day Vulnerability?

You are here:
< All Topics

A zero-day vulnerability is a newly discovered software vulnerability that lacks an official patch or updates to fix. In that scenario, software developers have “zero-days” to fix the problem that security teams have just discovered; otherwise, hackers may exploit the security hole to cause a zero-day attack. A zero-day vulnerability remains exposed until a software vendor issues a security patch.
