Just a quick post.
A few weeks ago, Microsoft issued a release-version update to EMET.
Enhanced Mitigation Experience Toolkit (EMET) version 5.5 is now available - Security Research & Defense. From that post:
Today we are pleased to announce the release of EMET 5.5, which includes the following new functionality and updates:
- Windows 10 compatibility
- Improved configuration of various mitigations via GPO
- Improved writing of the mitigations to the registry, making it easier to leverage existing tools to manage EMET mitigations via GPO
- EAF/EAF+ pseudo-mitigation performance improvements
- Support for untrusted fonts mitigation in Windows 10
Get the stuff:
- Download Enhanced Mitigation Experience Toolkit (EMET) 5.5 - Microsoft Download Center
- Download Enhanced Mitigation Experience Toolkit (EMET) 5.5 User Guide - Microsoft Download Center
- Download Enhanced Mitigation Experience Toolkit (EMET) 5.5 converter - Microsoft Download Center
- The EMET 5.5 registry has been refactored in order to make it easier to manage EMET settings via Group Policy. To convert settings from previous versions of EMET (including EMET 5.5 Beta) to EMET 5.5, use the provided converter.
You still can’t seem to “upgrade” to the new version. I had to uninstall the previous EMET version (after exporting the custom settings I have). Then I installed the new version and imported my XML file back in.
It seems to be running just fine on our Windows 7 and 8.1 systems.
And yes, I do live dangerously and run it concurrently with Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit in a “yes I will run with scissors and you can’t stop me” sort of attitude.
