%T "Zero Day"
At one time, in information security terminology, "zero day" meant a
measure of difficulty or vulnerability. That meaning has been largely
destroyed by overexposure in the media. Today it simply means "we
want to scare you."
To top it all off, here is this book by David Baldacci. As a common-
or-garden thriller it is OK. But it has nothing to do with computers.
Nothing to do with information security. Zip. Zero (you should
pardon the expression). Zilch. Nada. Null. None. Nugatory. Not a
sausage. The titular phrase isn't even used anywhere in the book. It
seems to have been used as a title simply to say "we want you to think
this is really, really scary."
