Enhanced Mitigation Experience Toolkit (EMET) 4.1

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).

What's new in this version:

  • Updated default protection profiles, Certificate Trust rules, and Group Policy Object configuration.
  • Shared remote desktop environments are now supported on Windows servers where EMET is installed.
  • Windows Event logging mechanism allows for more accurate reporting in multi-user scenarios.
  • Addressed several application-compatibility enhancements and mitigation false positive reporting.

What problems have you had with v4?
I have been using v4 for a couple of months now on a few systems, and it works well.

It was when v4 first came out, it was crashing apps like internet explorer. Not sure why though. I might give it another try.

Just installed it and its already constantly closing Adobe Reader ("EMET detected caller mitigation and will close the application")

No issues here on 3 Win 8.1 machines, with 4.0 and now 4.1 installed.
Using "recommended setup" option of EMET, and added a few extra apps manually.
Latest version of Adobe reader.

This is worth an install as I believe it protected against some recent vulnerabilities before Anti Virus etc picked it up. I have had a few problems with v4 though
