EMET 5.0 is now available. You should have this installed, regardless of which antivirus/antimalware solution you have on your Windows PC.

Download EMET 5.0 here.

DamageInc: is this recommended for the general windows user?

I would recommend it for the general windows user given that it, by default (as part of it's wizard you get on first install) protects all the usual apps that are exploited:  Java, Adobe Reader and the Microsoft Products suite.

Just apply the quick profile setting for "Maximum Protection" "Recommended Security Settings" and breath a little easier.

This provides protection against memory exploits, making your PC harder to exploit than it is by default.

Do NOT apply the Maximum Protection for a general Windows user. It will drive them nuts. Unless you know what you are doing in EMET, always use Recommended Security Settings profile.




Do whatever you want to do man.

Thanks - I've edited my post.

I'm curious why you say this though - I've had zero problems with this setting on 3 different PCs.

What ceases working correctly with Maximum?

I am surprised that none of your applications including that use Java and Flash are crashing or not working under Maximum profile out of the box settings.

Well I don't use any Java, and the only Flash I'd be using is built into Chrome.  I have Chrome flagged with all settings though.

I did have issues back with the original EMET 4.0 and Samsung Kies, but those seem to have disappeared with EMET5.

There is a new release of EMET that addresses a compatibility issue with a security update for Internet Explorer, among other fixes. It is highly recommended that all users of EMET 5.0 upgrade.

I wondered why IE started pooping itself when I tried to use it yesterday (only because Chrome was pooping itself too)

Thanks for the heads up.
