Zero Day Attack
Malicious software code that exploits a software vulnerability which hasn't yet been repaired by the manufacturer or recognised by anti-virus software is called a zero day attack. This kind of attack is particularly dangerous because until it has been detected, end users can become victims of the malicious code even whilst running anti-virus software and having the latest patches. The worlds most often attacked software manufacturer, Microsoft, releases security updates to all its products once a month on what has become known as Patch Tuesday. Some believe that this cycle is too short, potentially leaving some zero day vulnerabilities unpatched for as long as a month. In practice however, 3rd party security companies usually beat Microsoft to protecting against these vulnerabilities.
