In addition to the types of cyber attacks already mentioned, a compelling example of a Zero-Day Exploit is the Stuxnet worm. This notorious malware targeted Iran’s nuclear enrichment facilities and exploited zero-day vulnerabilities in the Windows operating system. As a result, it compromised the industrial control systems and led to the destruction of nearly 20% of Iran’s nuclear centrifuges by making them spin out of control. This case serves as a stark example of the devastating impact such attacks can have on critical infrastructure. I came across this intriguing example through a YouTuber named 9arm.
