Such bugs, known as "zero days," are highly prized because they are harder to defend against since software makers and security firms have not had time to figure out ways to block them.They are typically used by nation states for espionage and sabotage, not by cyber criminals who tend to use widely known bugs for their attacks.  Full Article
