Zero Day Risks and the Return of Hacking Team

There are basically two kinds of threats organizations and users face today: the ones that security vendors and threat researchers know about, and those they don’t. The ones we know about get vendor patches, signatures are updated across a variety of security tools in order to detect them, and behaviors are documented in order to detect and disrupt the more sophisticated ones. People who are affected by these sorts of attacks usually either don’t have the right security tools deployed in the right places, or they aren’t practicing adequate cyber hygiene.
