 I just caught a news article that summed up nicely what 0day means...

 "A zero-day flaw is a software vulnerability that has become public
 knowledge but for which no patch is available. It is particularly
 dangerous since users are exposed from day zero until the day a vendor
 prepares a patch and notifies users it is ready."

this is still incorrect.

as discussed previously: 0day is a perspective.

if it comes from out of no where and pwns your ass, it is 0day.

where you are on the vulnerability disclosure time-line determines
your perspective.  one man's 0day is another man's old news.
