eEye releases Zero-Day Tracker

Researchers with eEye Digital Security released a new vulnerability tracking tool this week designed to help security practitioners reduce their risks of Zero-Day attacks.

The Zero Day Tracker is the first industry site designed to exclusively disseminate information on zero-day vulnerabilities. It provides information and analysis on unpatched vulnerabilities for which exploits are publicly available and offers remediation strategies and proactive steps that can be taken to protect organizations from these attacks.

"More zero-day security vulnerabilities and attacks are being discovered every day and dealing with them can easily dominate an enterprise's IT efforts," said Marc Maiffret, eEye's founder and CTO. "As a result, we've been overwhelmed by requests from our customers to give them the information and time they need to protect their networks. Our Zero-Day Tracker is a direct response to this tremendous demand."

The site has seven active Zero-Day vulnerabilities listed and 18 resolved vulnerabilities archived.

Most recently the company found a critical vulnerability in Adobe software that initially was reported as a DoS vulnerability. After extensive research, eEye found that the bug was actually exploitable.
