Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit Settings Help


Recommended Posts

Im using Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit on a windows 7 ultimate 64 bit pc mainly protecting google chrome.

In the advanced settings menu I noticed alot of protection options disabled for various attack surfaces.

For example under application hardening for Browsers and Chrome Browsers Bottom Up ASLR Enforcement was disabled and for Crome browsers Anti-HeapSpraying Enforcement was disabled.

Which options is it safe to enable and is it adviced to test this yourself on a trial and error basis or should I leave all the options as default?

Any help with which settings I could enable without worry is greatly appreciated.


Im using:

  • Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit 
  • Google Chrome 41.0.2272.118 m (64-bit)
  • Malwarebytes Anti Malware Free using database v2015.04.11.08
  • Malwarebytes Anti Exploit Premium
  • Hitmanpro (no realtime)

Browser Extensions:

  • Avira Browser Safety
  • AdblockPlus
  • Web of Trust
  • HTTPS Everywhere
  • Google Docs
  • Google Sheets
  • Google Slides

Thanks in Advance.

Hi again Titan.


The default configuration is the best balance between maximizing protection and minimizing potential conflicts. Since Chrome browsers already include some exploit mitigations by default, this is the reason for a different default configuration from the Browsers profile.


You can very safely operate with the default MBAE configuration. However if you want to increase your protection, simply enable extra mitigations one by one, making sure there are no problems or conflicts. If you do run into any problems, you can always go back to the Advanced settings windows and click the "Restore defaults" button to go back to the factory settings.


PS: Moving this to the Questions sub-forum.
