Enhanced Mitigation Experience Toolkit (EMET) 4.0 Final released

The Enhanced Mitigation Experience Toolkit (EMET) is a utility that helps prevent vulnerabilities in software from being successfully exploited. EMET achieves this goal by using security mitigation technologies. These technologies function as special protections and obstacles that an exploit author must defeat to exploit software vulnerabilities. These security mitigation technologies do not guarantee that vulnerabilities cannot be exploited. However, they work to make exploitation as difficult as possible to perform.The new EMET 4.0 also provides a configurable SSL/TLS certificate pinning feature that is called Certificate Trust. This feature is intended to detect man-in-the-middle attacks that are leveraging the public key infrastructure (PKI).

It is an excellent tool and, like Top Qat, I install it on every system I have admin rights on.

There is some interesting technology behind this security tool.
If you get time, I recommend reading thru the PDF and the external links within.

Been using EMET on all my PCs since v3. It's never caused a problem.
IMO it's worth installing for the extra defense against baddies!
