Re: Microsoft Security Advisory (2847140)

Thank you for bringing this to our attention.

If I install EMET on a computer with 1-3 standard users, does it have to be configured for each user, or will configuring it in the admin account cover all users? If it has to be configured in standard accounts individually, does it have to be done "run as admin" or can the standard user configure it?

Thank you.

Sincerely, Libra

I don't know too much about EMET other than what is detailed below:

Pretty sure configuring under Admin covers all users. I know EMET is running on one non-Admin account on one of my machines.

PS: Just checked and EMET uses the same settings for all user accounts.
(They're kept in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\EMET)

Thank you for the Fixit. I applied it to one computer so far.

StuartMW, Thank you for checking that the EMET applies to all users. I didn't use it since there is now a fixit, but it's good to know for the future.

Sincerely, Libra

The whole point of EMET is to catch some common exploit techniques that an A/V might miss (e.g. 0-Day).
