Yeah, same old.

There are "Zero day exploits" which are previously unknown security holes/weaknesses that a hacker finds and uses before the IT Security research industry does. Only when the exploit is used publicly (in the "Wild") do they identify it and produce virus/spyware definitions or security patches to stop it.
