This Is How They Tell Me the World Ends
For criminal investigation, military intelligence, and straight-up espionage, fewer software tools can beat a zero-day exploit. A Zero-day is a weakness, unknown to developers or security professionals, in software or an operating system which allows a hacker to break in or cause harm to the targeted computer. A zero-day exploit is an attack crafted to make use of a zero-day vulnerability.
Nicole Perlroth, a journalist from the New York Times, tells the story of how the United States government was a prolific collector of zero-days, but suffered hacks and lost control of its collection. Now, a devil's brew of criminals and bad actors are using the stolen zero-days to cause real harm in the world. Perlroth shows how heroes and villains are having unseen battles over acquisition and usage of zero-days, and none of us are immune to effects of who wins or loses in the secret cyber arms race
