Possible anti-exploit program from Malwarebytes

Post by pbb » Mon 28 Apr 2014 22:31

Malwarebytes has a program they call 'antiexploit' which runs as a service alongside the usual anti-virus and anti-malware programs.

They claim it is effective against this exploit, both for Internet Explorer and Windows XP.

Notes:
1. This is BETA software!
2. Also it is free currently (since it's still in Beta), but it may become chargeable in the future.
3. The Blog article advises against running this software if you are already running EMET (most people won't be).
