For those of you who are new to EMET:

"The Enhanced Mitigation Experience Toolkit (EMET) is designed to help prevent hackers from gaining access to your system. Software vulnerabilities and exploits have become an everyday part of life. Virtually every product has to deal with them and consequently, users are faced with a stream of security updates. For users who get attacked before the latest updates have been applied or who get attacked before an update is even available, the results can be devastating: malware, loss of PII, etc." 

EMET 4.0 features and updates incude:

Redesigned User Interface
Configuration Wizard
Changes in Certificate Trust
Updated Group Policy profiles
Download and benefit. I'll be covering EMET 4.0 in toolsmith for July.

Any ideas or seen any downloads for the Oracle Java Update post above this article? ...i need 1.6 on windows for **** legacy enterprise apps that the vendor is acting slow to provide any Java 7 compatibility. Installing both versions stuffs the legacy app at least in one case.
Might have to run it on my Mac and remove 1.6 from windows and just use the mac for this legacy app.
You'd think if they let apple come out with official update of 1.6 update 51 then they would also do the same ( even if it is past their support ). Vendors have been too slow to update their appliances/softwares code to work with java 7. arrgghhhh!!
6 month after the release, does someone know of any large scale deployement of EMET and how it went?
