Security researchers have spotted two new targeted attack campaigns aimed at organisations in Japan, China and elsewhere in Asia, one of which exploits a zero day exploit in Internet Explorer revealed only last week.

"one of which exploits a zero day exploit in Internet Explorer revealed only last week."
Did I miss something? "Zero day" and "revealed last week" are mutually exclusive, no?

and disconnect themselves from the internets, mobiles and anything that can be used to input data.
