Zero-day Exploits Targeted Quicker After Disclosure
by Artie Kaye
Microsoft released a security report that addresses the speed at which zero-day exploits are abused after they are made public. Cybercriminals are quick to attempt to find ways of leveraging the vulnerabilities. Most take an average of 14 days to become an active attack vector. This highlights the importance of patching zero-day’s as soon as you are able, or if there is no patch yet, finding ways of mitigating the problem until one is developed.
