comment where can I find list of zero day vulnerability?
This question appears to be off-topic because a) you appear to be asking for something which by its very definition can't exist, and b) listing vulnerabilities and exploits is not part of the remit of this site - there are already many which do this

comment Can't see advantages of rainbow tables over hash tables
Kosho - have you read up on the difference between rainbow tables and hash tables? This is a basic prerequisite. If you read any rainbow tables documentation you will see what they are for. As SilverlightFox asked - can you edit your question to explain what you want to achieve. For some applications a hash table is what you want, but for others a rainbow table will be so much more useful.
