Zero day is a security vulnerability that are unknown to the respective software vendor. In our context, Undiscovered Facebook vulnerabilities are called Facebook Zero Day.

How Facebook Zero Day hacking works?

FB zero day vulnerabilities are very rare since Facebook runs a bug bounty program where security researchers around the world participate and report zero day vulnerabilities. It is basically a security loop hole that is unaware to FB. It can be any hack affecting Facebook. There are two types of people who find zero day vulnerabilities. First case is Security Researchers and Bug hunters who make a responsible disclosure about the vulnerability to the software vendor, FB in our context. Another case falls under evil side, black hat hackers who find zero day vulnerabilities don’t disclose it to Facebook and they will use it for their personal benefit of hacking. A few high severity vulnerabilities discovered in Facebook bug bounty program are listed below.

How could you prevent yourself from Zero Day found by a hacker?

You need not be afraid of a zero day vulnerability affecting FB. As i have said earlier, zero day vulnerabilities are very rare. In most cases zero day vulnerabilities are targeted only at influential people and celebrities. It is rare to target a common man using a zero day vulnerability.
