The underground economy is alive and well.

From The Inquirer Philippines:

According to IBM’s X-Force midyear report, more than 90 percent of browser-related exploits detected during the first six months of this year have occurred within 24 hours after these vulnerabilities were disclosed.

More significantly, IBM noted hackers are adopting new techniques and strategies in order to better exploit “zero-day” vulnerabilities, or simply before users are even aware they need to install patches or updates.

As long as there is money to be made this will continue. So basically, zero days aren’t going anywhere for the time being. No great revelation there I’m sure.

Be aware and patch your systems.
