Security researchers at Google have called 2020 the year of zero-day exploits owing to the large number of these vulnerabilities that were detected and fixed last year.
In a year-in-review post, the researchers shared that while they are still a long way off from detecting the zero-day exploits in the wild, surprisingly a quarter of them stem from previously disclosed vulnerabilities and could have easily been prevented.
“1 out of every 4 detected 0-day exploits could potentially have been avoided if a more thorough investigation and patching effort were explored,” wrote Maddie Stone, a security researcher in Google’s Project Zero team.
