QUOTE:  The Enhanced Mitigation Experience Toolkit enables and implements different techniques to make successful attacks on your system more difficult. EMET is designed to mitigate exploitation attempts (even of 0-days) by making “current” exploitation techniques harder and less reliable. Users interested in finding out more about EMET can read more here.  Today’s release comes with some new features:
  • EMET is an officially-supported product through the online forum
  • “Bottom-up Rand” new mitigation randomizes (8 bits of entropy) the base address of bottom-up allocations (including heaps, stacks, and other memory allocations) once EMET has enabled this mitigation.
  • Export Address Filtering is now available for 64 bit processes. EAF filters all accesses to the Export Address Table which blocks most of the existing shellcodes
  • Improved command line support for enterprise deployment and configuration
  • Ability to export/import EMET settings
  • Improved SEHOP (structured exception handler overwrite protection)  mitigation
  • Minor bug fixes
