2013 First Quarter Zero-Day Vulnerabilities


Symantec recommends users to follow these best security practices:

  • Ensure all applications are up to date with the latest security patches. Even though a zero-day exploit cannot be patched, the latest updates will provide protection from previously disclosed vulnerabilities.
  • Ensure antivirus and IPS definitions are up-to-date.
  • Avoid visiting sites of questionable integrity.
  • Avoid opening files provided by untrusted sources.
  • Implement multiple redundant layers of security such as non-executable and randomly mapped memory segments that may hinder an attacker's ability to exploit vulnerabilities.

With thanks and best regards,
