Outlook exploit blocked

Recommended Posts

Having a similar issue as above.  When I try to open Excel or PDF files attached to emails in MS Outlook 2016 running on Windows 7 64bit system, I get a popup Exploit Blocked window showing Protection Against OS Security Bypass, Exploit ROP Gadget Attack Blocked.  I have attached the files suggested by Porthos in the post above






Thanks for your help,

@JFThompson, @SkipDrive

Could you try the following for me?

  1. Open MB3
  2. Navigate to Settings -> Protection
  3. Click Advanced Settings
  4. Click the Advanced Memory Protection tab
  5. The first row should be titled Malicious Return Address Protection, uncheck the box in this row under MS Office
  6. Click Apply

Also @SkipDrive, if you could get us some logs to look over, that should help identify if the same issue is being seen. See my signature on how to get logs, make sure to get FRST and MB-Check logs. 


Thank you
