What is a zero-day exploit?
A zero-day exploit is one of the most dangerous vulnerabilities that you can have in any software application. It means that the flaw is known to hackers before it has been fixed. Hackers use them all the time, and sometimes it can take months or even years to detect them. When we tell you about a zero-day, you need to act fast.
Let me know if you need help with this or anything else.
All the best,
