How DevSecOps Can Combat Zero-Day Threats

Zero-day threats are becoming more dangerous than ever. Recently, bad actors have taken over the TikTok accounts of celebrities and brands through a zero-day hack. In late May to early June, reports of high-profile TikTok users losing control over their accounts started to surface after opening a direct message. The malware used for the attack was able to infect devices without the users downloading or installing anything.

TikTok appeared unaware of the extent of the damage. The company’s spokesperson, Alex Haurek, said that the number of accounts compromised was “very small,” but he also declined to provide a specific number. He said they have been working with the owners of the affected accounts to restore access and that they have implemented measures to make sure the problem does not happen again.
