Angler exploit kit...


Recommended Posts

It looks like MS EMET 5.5 bit the dust, at least on Windows 7, quote:

The ability of Angler EK to evade EMET mitigations and successfully exploit Flash and Silverlight is fairly sophisticated in our opinion. These exploits do not utilize the usual return oriented programming to evade DEP. Data Execution Prevention (DEP) is a mitigation developed to prevent the execution of code in certain parts of memory. The Angler EK uses exploits that do not utilize common return oriented programming (ROP) techniques to evade DEP. Instead, they use Flash.ocx and Coreclr.dll’s inbuilt routines to call VirtualProtect and VirtualAlloc, respectively, with PAGE_EXECUTE_READWRITE, thus evading DEP and evading return address validation-based heuristics.

I wonder if the Angler still wants to terminate, once it finds out that MBAE is running next to EMET. 

Will MBAE prevent Angler from infecting my machine?

TIA...
