http://www.malwarebytes.org/antiexploit/ What do people here know of this tool, it's from malwarebytes so it should be pretty(read VERY) trustworthy but i don't know whether it's as helpful as it sounds. Or if it mainly just does things like redirect some pages or alter browser and search engine settings, in a way that might be a nuisance. Is it particularly effective? Do you think it would work well on a machine that is using AVG as it's main antivirus, MBAM free as a scanner, and firefox and chrome as it's browsers, firefox having noscript and adblockplus installed within it, or might some of these tools all running at once conflict with each other? Thanks

Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit (MBAE), formerly ExploitShield by ZeroVulnerabilityLabs, is a security program that runs in the background as a standard Windows Service and protects against zero-day exploits that target browser and application vulnerabilities. MBAE provides three layers of exploit protection (against Operating System security bypasses, memory caller protection, application behavior protection). MBAE continuously monitors popular applications, preventing vulnerabilities in software and browsers from being exploited, blocks unknown and known exploit kits, proactively preventing the exploit from installing its payload before it can do damage. This means that it will protect against code execution that uses a certain vulnerability in an application. MBAE leaves a small footprint...meaning it is not intrusive, does not utilize a lot of system resources and does not use a signature database so there is no need for constant updating.

Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit Premium includes additional protecton (Shields) for PDF readers, Microsoft Office (Word, Excel, Powerpoint), Media players and allows the ability to add/manage custom shields.



There is also a Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit Support and Discussion Thread here.
