Microsoft Announcing the Release of the Enhanced Mitigation Evaluation Toolkit (EMET)

Oct
28

Even as you read this, people around the world are hunting for vulnerabilities in software applications.  Odds are some of them will be successful.  Depending on their motives and what they find, your software and systems may be put at risk.  So how do you protect your software from unknown vulnerabilities that may or may not exist?  One option is to use security mitigations.

Microsoft offers a number of different mitigation technologies that are designed to make it more difficult for an attacker to exploit vulnerabilities in a given piece of software.  Take a look at Michael Howard’s article “Protecting Your Code with Visual C++ Defenses” (http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/magazine/cc337897.aspx) for a brief overview of some of these technologies.

Supported mitigations include:

  • SEHOP
  • Dynamic DEP
  • NULL page allocation
  • Heap spray allocation

Microsoft Security Essentials is Finally Released

Oct
02

Microsoft Security Essentials provides real-time protection for your home PC that guards against viruses, spyware, and other malicious software.

Microsoft Security Essentials is a free* download from Microsoft that is simple to install, easy to use, and always kept up to date so you can be assured your PC is protected by the latest technology. It’s easy to tell if your PC is secure — when you’re green, you’re good. It’s that simple.

Microsoft Security Essentials runs quietly and efficiently in the background so that you are free to use your Windows-based PC the way you want—without interruptions or long computer wait times.

(Microsoft, 2009)

To me, it is a “better have than not” security product.. I thing that attract me is the browser (only IE) exploitation shield.
