EMET 4.0 is out.

Mon Sep 02, 2013 11:15 am

The Enhanced Mitigation Experience Toolkit version 4.0 has been out since June, and I only just found out about it! New features and a better user interface than before. I like it. I don't know why Microsoft doesn't make this toolkit more visible for average folks. Especially for us Windows XP weirdos who have not crawled up onto the land of modernity from the primeval sea of antiquity, this is a nice little toolkit.

Nice to see them bundling things like this together in a single package. But "Enhanced Mitigation Experience Toolkit"? That's gotta be one of the worst names for a piece of software I've ever seen. Almost sounds like it was named by lawyers. (Maybe it was...)

No worse than the glory days of NASA, JBI.
If the Earth were flat, cats would have pushed everything off of it by now.

Heh. It has a few kinks to work out. Adding Gimp 2.8 to the application list will cause a wall of notification messages if you use "audit only", and gimp won't run on "stop on exploit" mode. It does this even if you uncheck all those little checkboxes in the gimp 2.8 row.

Everything else seems to be playing nice with it though.

Well, gotta do something about that evil Open Source software, y'know... :lol:
