Computerworld: overhyped zero-day exploits

9:55 CET, 6th July 2011 By Secunia.

In the Computerworld article ‘Researcher: Threats from zero-day exploits overhyped’, Jeremy Kirk interviews Secunia’s Research Analyst Director, Stefan Frei, about zero-day threats.

Research from Secunia’s new white paper, 'How to Secure a Moving Target with Limited Resources' found that leaving a long-known vulnerability unpatched potentially poses a greater hacking risk to organisations than zero-day exploits.

"Zero-day [threats] get the attention of many people, and there's not a lot we can do against zero- days,” said Stefan Frei. But for vulnerabilities that have been fixed, "patching is very effective to eliminate those risks."
