There is a ****show so that's usually something one sits down for.

You know you're beloved Windows operating system probably has plenty of zero days (more than any other operating system) that Microsoft knows about right? There's a few documented cases of FBI/DEA/NSA using said day zeros which were likely Microsoft created back doors for use against people.

There's a ton, the Snowden leaks referred to them as "only for us" exploits. There's probably a lot for Windows, different levels. There's probably really really good ones they will only use against Osama Bin Laden and then the lesser ones they won't mind using against ordinary people since they will have to reveal it in court and the exploit will be dead after that.

There's probably some Linux day zeros as well or ones that target the tor network/i2p, very likely would only ever be used against very high profile criminals/terrorists and Osama Bin Laden types.
