Research Brief:

An inside view of the rapid weaponization of a leaked zero-day POC


This paper details a unique case where a security company specializing in offensive technology was compromised, and their trove of zero days was leaked to the Internet, including several for Adobe’s Flash Player. As the zero days were previously unknown, but were accompanied by clear and concise instructions to deploy them, we had a keen interest in seeing if our solution, Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit, would effectively block the zero days (which it did), as well as how fast the exploit kit developers would deploy them.
