    Hello,

    Windows security: a review of Enhanced Mitigation Experience Toolkit (EMET), a whitelist-style security product by Microsoft designed to harden the system by applying a series of mitigation policies to the system and running applications. Finally, a security product worth examining. Do take a look.

    Cheers,

    Very well written and easy to understand, even for me. :thumb:

    Many of your other pages are also a must read, imho. Am now reading your "Group Policies - Beginners' guide", simple and to the point, and your writing style smoot things off nicely !

    My question is: it's possible to use this EMET together an HIPS ( I'm using CIS ) or there are some conflict risks ? Someone is trying ?

    Why would you want to do that?
    The whole beauty is that it's transparent.

    Works fine, just don't use EMET on the HIPS.

    EMET installer is compatible with x86 as well as x64. You do not need separate installer for 64bit.

    Win 7 VM.

    Added mbam.exe to EMET protect list and installed the exe killing rogue Security Tool.

    At one stage after installing the rogue and a reboot the vm bsod and at reset it booted into a new profile with minimal services running, no graphics or sound.

    At a second run where there was no bsod the exe killing rogue still kills everything.

    IMO a useless and dangerous tool.

    I can't see how to get 'green' under the heading 'Running EMET'.
    That whole column is empty.
    Any ideas?
    Happy Holidays.

    Add a program under EMET and then run that program. A green tick mark will appear in front of program name under 'Running EMET' column.
