Free zero-day threat database for users

Antony Savvas

A security software company has launched a free database of unpatched “zero day” software vulnerabilities to help companies fight internet threats.

The vulnerability tracking site from eEye Digital Security offers strategies to deal with unpatched security vulnerabilities, including information that is not available from any other source.

“The increasing proliferation of zero-day vulnerabilities means the previous window of opportunity IT had to secure networks between the release of a software patch and an attack has been slammed shut,” said eEye CTO Marc Maiffret. “More zero-day security vulnerabilities and attacks are being discovered every day and dealing with them can easily dominate an enterprise’s IT efforts. As a result, customers need more information and time to protect their networks.”
