What do you, as professional, believe 0day should mean, regardless
of previous definitions?
As a professional, I would be happy to see terms like '0day' banished
from the lexicon entirely. It's an essentially meaningless -- all
third-party exploits are zero-day to _somebody_ -- term of boast co-
opted from the warez scene, and we can do perfectly well without it.
Quibbling over its precise definition seems a ridiculous waste of bytes.
