It means bread that is dry and slightly stale, which is usually several days old. If you need stale bread (for stuffing, for example) and you don't have any, leaving it uncovered overnight is a good way to 'stale' it.

How long does it take for sourdough bread to mold?

Sourdough bread's mild level of acidity will discourage the growth of most mold species. We leave my sourdough loaves out of the refrigerator and the loaves will get eaten up in a week but they never grow mold.The time required for sourdough or any bread to mold depends on that particular bread's level of acidity, the humidity and temperature of the room, and whether it is well wrapped or allowed to become dry.
