Zero Day Vulnerabilities Exploded in 2021
This information comes from the latest analysis from Google's Project Zero
Recently, Google revealed that its Project Zero team tracked 58 zero-day vulnerabilities used in the wild, the most since the program's inception in 2014.
Zero-day vulnerabilities are one of the most challenging security issues, which also means that many people are looking for them. Unfortunately, that means security researchers and malicious actors alike. Because a zero-day vulnerability can give attackers the tools needed to compromise a device, network or other types of infrastructure, an entire industry is built on the back of these exploits.
The number 58 might not seem like a lot, but we have to remember these vulnerabilities have been spotted in the wild and used in attacks. Even worse, they are only the ones about which we know.
