16 Data Security Compliance Advisors Certified Identity Theft Risk Management Specialists 873 East Baltimore Pike #501 Kennett Square, PA Zero Day Attack A zero-day (or zero-hour or day zero) attack or threat is an attack that exploits a previously unknown vulnerability in a computer application, meaning that the attack occurs on "day zero" of awareness of the vulnerability. This means that the developers have had zero days to address and patch the vulnerability. Zero-day exploits (actual software that uses a security hole to carry out an attack) are used or shared by attackers before the developer of the target software knows about the vulnerability.

17 Data Security Compliance Advisors Certified Identity Theft Risk Management Specialists 873 East Baltimore Pike #501 Kennett Square, PA BOTNET The term "botnet" can be used to refer to any group of computers, such as IRC bots, but the term is generally used to refer to a collection of computers (called zombie computers) that have been recruited by running malicious software. It could be used to send spam or participate in Denial of service attacks. The word botnet stems from the two words robot and network.
