EMET Is Coming Back to Windows 10

If you’re a hardcore Windows fan and user, you’ve most likely noticed that there are some things that have been taken out of the beloved computer operating system’s roster of the feature when Windows 10 came to our devices. One of those things is EMET, the Enhanced Mitigation Experience Toolkit, which was a means of making your Windows tougher in order to avoid the unlawful exploitation of security flaws.

EMET was a useful tool that kept bugs at bay, but Windows Defender doesn’t have it anymore these days. But it’s scheduled for a return of sorts, under the guise of the Windows Defender Exploit Guard. Although this isn’t EMET per se, it does share of the features that made EMET one of the most indispensable tools for your computer.

The Windows Defender Exploit Guard (let’s call it WDEG from here on) has the ability to control the OS mitigation capabilities at both a general and individual level. This way, a lot of harmful Office macros will be blocked and access to malware-ridden websites will be limited overall. When you put things that way, it’s almost incredible that the Windows Defender system doesn’t currently have such an ability.

The fall Windows 10 Creators Update will bring a whole lot of exciting new features and open up a world of possibilities for your Windows-based computer. But the return of EMET is one of the best ideas we’ve heard so far, especially when taking into account that staying safe on the Internet has turned into a nightmare of apocalyptic proportions.

Ransomware attacks are on the rise, as proved by the recent Petya ransomware attack that freezes up computers and demands 300 dollars in bitcoin in exchange for their freedom. We’re living in a dark world, so it’s good to know that EMET is back.
