    There's nothing to figure out. v3 beta is not available for download yet.

    Is there any added benefit to running both HitmanPro.Alert and EMET?

    Feature-wise nothing even overlaps yet, so why wouldn't there be?

    I suppose it's just one of those things that take more time than anticipated.

    HitmanPro.Alert 3.0.12 build 63 CTP1

    HitmanPro.Alert 3 Community Technology Preview 1 is now available!

    With version 3 we deliver comprehensive exploit protections and anti-espionage technologies to both home users and IT professionals. The software works in real-time and does not rely on signatures or the cloud.

    NOTE: HitmanPro.Alert 3 CTP1 is pre-release software and should not be used in production environments.

    Hardware-Assisted Control-Flow Integrity (CFI)
    Alert version 3 introduces hardware-assisted control-flow integrity, which leverages special Intel CPU hardware registers to monitor how software executes on the CPU. This allows Alert 3 to detect sophisticated return-oriented programming (ROP) attacks. Read chapter 2.5 of the Exploit Test Tool manual (provided in the download below) for supported Intel CPUs.

    New Features (compared to version 2)
    • Exploit Mitigation
    • Active Vaccination
    • Keystroke Encryption
    • Webcam Notifier
    • Hollow Process blocker
    • Integrates with HitmanPro
    Exploit Test Tool
    To verify the correct working of HitmanPro.Alert we have developed an Exploit Test Tool. This safe and easy-to-use tool can perform over a dozen exploit techniques that attackers currently use to compromise computers from remote. The Exploit Test Tool can also act like a keylogger and access the webcam. A manual is provided in the download below.

    Download
    http://test.hitmanpro.com/hmpalert3ctp1.zip

    License
    Exploit Mitigation requires a valid HitmanPro license. A trial license is available from within the application. The regular HitmanPro paid license will work as well and is available from our online shop.
    HitmanPro.Alert 3 is free software if you already own a license for the HitmanPro on-demand anti-malware software.

    Users who would like to try the software beyond the trial period can send me a PM for an extended trial key.

    Known Issues
    • Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit is currently incompatible with HitmanPro.Alert, but the Exploit Test Tool is compatible.
    • AutoIt applications like AdwCleaner show a warning when started. Temporarily disable Active Vaccination allows the AutoIt application to run.
    • Webcam Notifier works with standard webcams. Webcams using vendor specific drivers are currently not yet supported.
    • Alert counters in the UI are currently disabled but exploit detections are logged in the Windows Event Log.
    • Alert 3 is currently incompatible with Emsisoft Anti-Malware on 64-bit versions of Windows. Workaround: disable exploit mitigation on IE11 and Chrome 64-bit.
    Please report issues via PM or email erik@surfright.com.

    Wow, just wow!

    This is so much more than MBAE ever could be. Big congratulations for this early technical preview!

    30 days. If you need more time, just let me know and I'll provide a key.

    Yes. Alert 3 will automatically pick up the MBAE tester (as long as you don't rename it).

    We are still working on that. On some systems Sandboxie works with Alert. On some it doesn't.

    This is a technical preview to collect incompatibilities. This way we know where we need to put effort. It is impossible to test all situations in our lab.

    What version of Windows and Sandboxie are you using?

    Win 8.1 64 bit. Sandboxie 4.12 64 bit.
    It worked nicely on latest Chrome un-sandboxed.

    Another one finding v3 not compatible with Sandboxie.
    Win 7Pro SP1 64 bit and Sandboxie 4.12 64 bit.

    Pleasantly surprised to find it protecting PDF-Xchange reader out of the box. Looking good.
