    Hi all,I just came a cross video on youtube and it seems that just a few folks have watched it so I decided to share it here.
    This is presentation by Matt Miller aka "skape" (the guy behind Metasploit) who is now working for Microsoft developing tools like EMET for instance...

    Thanks for the heads up, I will check it out. :thumb:

    I must say that M$ has really done quite a good job to make Win 7/8 a lot safer.

    A couple of examples:

    Kernel Patch Protection (PatchGuard)
    Data Execution Prevention (EMET)
    Mandatory Integrity Control (Limited User Account)
    Early Launch Anti-Malware (ELAM drivers)
    Trusted Boot + Secure Boot
