EMET 5.5 Beta Release

It just kind of quietly slipped out but Microsoft’s Enhanced Mitigation Experience Toolkit team released a new EMET 5.5 Beta version a few weeks ago.

Enhanced Mitigation Experience Toolkit (EMET) version 5.5 Beta is now available - Security Research & Defense

From the post:

EMET 5.5 Beta release includes new functionality and updates from EMET 5.2, including:

  • Windows 10 compatibility
  • Better configuration of various mitigations via GPO
  • EAF/EAF+ pseudo-mitigation performance improvements
