Blame the victim: Report shows fifth of breaches caused by “miscellaneous errors” | Ars TechnicaIn cases where malware or hacking was used to get in the door, "zero day" vulnerabilities played a microscopic role. The vast majority of breaches involving exploiting bugs in software went after known vulnerabilities—and just 10 vulnerabilities accounted for 85 percent of exploit attacks (though the list of top vulnerabilities has been called into question by some observers).
Social hacking has always been dominant. Probably, if someone was good enough to gain access to your systems through a zero-day exploit, you wouldn't know about it, unless they were using a purchased toolkit written by someone else.
