Zeroday database puts the squeeze on software vendors


Security vendor Eeye has launched a website where the company is publishing an overview of unpatched or so called 0 day software vulnerabilities that attackers are actively exploiting.

The company feels that publication of the information is needed now that attackers are increasingly expanding their focus beyond Microsoft software, making it harder for organizations and individuals to remain up to date about the latest security threats.

"This allows people to understand what 0-day exploits are out the," Marc Maiffret, Eeye's chief technology officer told vnunet.com. "Part of it is also that we want to put pressure on vendors so they patch the 0-days." Zeroday database puts the squeeze on software vendors - Security - www.itnews.com.au
