What is meant by a zero-day attack?

Zero-day attacks exploit unpatched vulnerabilities in software that are unknown to the developer or were already known, but the repair was delayed. Once the exploit is on the run, developing a patch can take hours or months.
One of the top zero-day attacks and the worst of 2021 was Log4j. The Log4j vulnerability affected everything from the cloud to developer tools and security devices.
