eEye Digital Security on Tuesday launched a Web site that tracks publicly released security bugs that don’t have an official patch, or tracks zero-day vulnerabilities.
The new eEye Zero-Day Tracker Web site on Tuesday listed seven zero-day vulnerabilities, six of which affect Microsoft software and one related to Adobe Systems’ Acrobat. For each of the problems, eEye suggests steps people can take to protect against exploitation of the flaws.
“More zero-day security vulnerabilities and attacks are being discovered every day,” Marc Maiffret, eEye’s chief technology officer, said in a statement. “We’ve been overwhelmed by requests from our customers to give them the information and time they need to protect their networks.”
