The free version of malwarebytes anti-exploit (MBAE) protects a range of browsers together with Java. However, it doesn't protect other applications such as Adobe reader or an email client such as Thunderbird. These, and other applications, could be protected by use of Microsoft EMET (Enhanced mitigation experience toolkit). If both MBAE and EMET were to be used to protect the same application, such as Firefox, then there could be some conflict which might not be apparent but which could reduce the effectiveness of either MBAE or EMET or both. However, if EMET was restricted to applications which are not protected by MBAE then one would expect the risk of such conflicts to be less. The question is, is this a reasonable approach?
One could use EMET by itself to protect every application but it isn't the most user-friendly tool. MBAE, however, is easy to install and trouble free so there is a case for taking advantage of that. Does anyone know of any problems which could arise if MBAE and EMET were used together but on different applications on a computer running Windows 7?
