Additional Mitigations


Recommended Posts

I wonder why MBAE doesn't have additional mitigation like EMET has? For example.

  • Attack Surface Reduction
  • Load Library Protection
  • Export Address Table Access Filtering
  • Export Address Table Access Filtering Plus

I would like to block certain dll's and win32 api functions. This should be for advanced users obviously.

It seems that EMET blocks detouring & dll injection as well? Not sure about MBAE.

EMET has some EMET-specific mitigations and limited in nature as compared to MBAE.

For example, EMET has ASR which basically disables a bunch of content in certain applications. They do this since they cannot protect from exploits through those applications, while MBAE's Layer3 can (think Java exploits, application design abuses, etc.).

OTOH EMET has some anti-detouring since it uses Detours. But MBAE does not need those since it uses a different approach.

Last but not least, MBAE uses a multi layer approach to mitigations and the mitigations we have in place are the ones that make the most amount of sense to us to deal with exploits ITW. MBAE is also supported and maintained actively, while EMET is not.
