Google's Project Zero is its in-house team of cybersecurity experts and analysts, who look at advanced threats, has detected a record number of exploits in 2021. In a blog post, the team, known as Project Zero, announced that these zero-day vulnerabilities and exploits had reached a recordbreaking number of 58. Project Zero was formed in 2014. In 2015, the team detected 28 exploits, which were reduced to 25 in the year 2020. A growing number of cyber-attacks and the popularity of cryptocurrency can be the reasons behind this spike. But according to Google, the spike detected, this time, is due to improvements in detecting and reporting zero-day occurrences. In a blog post, the Project Zero team stated that most of the zeroday exploit uses were "similar to previous publicly known vulnerabilities.” Only two events stood out for their "technological sophistication.” So, the increased number doesn't suggest a more dangerous situation than the previous year when it comes to zeroday vulnerabilities.
