Hackers are stupid. And no the real companies are pretty dumb also trying to exploit people. I hate this world just an fyi.

You forgot Oracle java is the most common target for zero day attacks most malware gets by av's through java exploits as well as SQL attacks for mining data.

^^ I have always known and used the second definition of zero-day attack, because it made more sense.

"...others define them as attacks that take advantage of a security vulnerability on the same day that the vulnerability becomes publicly known (zero-day)."

Else, it is just using a vulnerability, which to my mind is just as any other type of using the vulnerability, later patch or no patch.
